Find out when Jetstar flights to Bali return from your closest capital city in Australia
Australian travellers are finally returning to Bali — in droves! More than 300 passengers strapped in in Melbourne to fly to the Indonesian island on Jetstar’s first flight back to our favourite overseas holiday destination in nearly two years on Monday morning.
Jetstar’s flights from Melbourne will initially operate three times per week, with plans to ramp up as demand increases. Bali flights from Sydney and Perth are scheduled to recommence in early April, with flights from Brisbane, Adelaide, Cairns and Darwin scheduled for May.
With travel restrictions for international visitors to the island easing, the low-cost airline was quick to offer sale fares from as little as $99 to lure Aussies back. The close to sold out flight on Monday marked the first time Jetstar has flown to Bali since flights were grounded thanks to the COVID-19 pandemic on March 26, 2020.
Travellers into Bali are required to meet a number of requirements, as outlined by the Indonesian Government – including vaccination, PCR testing and proof of hotel bookings.
Bali: Jetstar’s most popular international destination
Jetstar Group CEO Gareth Evans said Bali has always been the most popular international destination in Jetstar’s network, with millions of people flying to the Indonesian island every year before COVID hit. “We are very excited to return to Bali today after two long years, and we are confident that Bali will quickly regain its position as our most popular international tourist destination now that borders are open,” he said. “Our recent Bali sale saw the biggest surge in bookings we’ve seen since 2016, and our recent surveys have consistently shown that Bali is still the top international destination people want to travel to.”
Pre-COVID, Jetstar operated up to 85 return flights per week to Bali, carrying more than two million customers each year and contributing almost two billion Australian dollars annually to the local Balinese economy.
As the largest international carrier into Bali, Jetstar has launched a new campaign which partners with 15 local businesses on the island who have been impacted by the tourism halt over the past two years.
“To Bali with Love”
The “To Bali with Love” campaign will see messages of love, support and celebration from Jetstar customers to their favourite venues dotted right across the island, with $100,000 in advertising spend going directly to local businesses.
The messages will be displayed through media that is locally owned, helping to drive income to small Balinese businesses, and will be visible across drinks coasters, surfboards, take-out bags, beach towels, posters and umbrellas.
