Bali Governor I Wayan Koster has invited officials of Jetstar Airways and the Australian media to celebrate the arrival of the first Jetstar flight at Bali Airport since 2020.
After two years of not operating the Melbourne-Denpasar route since the Covid-19 pandemic struck in 2020, Jetstar Airways finally landed its first flight in Bali Ngurah Rai Airport on Monday (14/3).
As part of the celebration, Koster invited the officials of the airline along with 23 Australian journalists and 9 travel agents for dinner at his office in Denpasar on Monday evening.
“I personally invited them for dinner because Bali has become the second home for many Australian travelers. Before the pandemic, 1.3 million Aussies would visit the island every year,” Koster added.
During the event, Koster also introduced his guests to a Balinese traditional beverage called Sugarless Coffee with Arak (Balinese liquor) to promote Bali local businesses.
“We served this beverage for them to introduce the products from local farmers. The drink is beneficial for our body, and this traditional arak is as great as sake from Japan and soju from South Korea,” Koster concluded.
