A Jetstar Airways flight from Perth has landed in Bali for the first time since the Covid-19 pandemic struck in March 2020.
The President of Angkasa Pura I for Bali Ngurah Rai Airport, Faik Fahmi, confirmed that Jetstar has officially resumed its Perth-Bali route on Friday morning (8/4), transporting over a hundred passengers to the island.
“The airline resumed the flight yesterday at 11:44 am, transporting 153 international travelers to Bali,” Faik said on Saturday (9/4).
The Perth-Bali route is the third resumed flight between Bali and Australia as Jetstar has also resumed its Sydney-Bali and Melbourne-Bali routes recently.
“Bali Ngurah Rai Airport is receiving flights from three Australian cities as of April 8,” Faik added. The plane arrived in Bali on Friday morning and departed from Bali at 1:10 pm on the same day with 87 passengers on board.
The Perth-Bali route by Jetstar Airways will operate 7 days a week. Faik admitted that the majority of foreign visitors to Bali before the Covid-19 pandemic were Australians, so he is optimistic that this will lead to the recovery of Bali tourism.
“With the added international route, we’re optimistic that the influx of visitors from Australia will surge,” Faik concluded.
