Bali may be home to some of the most luxurious hotels in the world, but now the high-life experience can begin even before you touch down on the Islands of the Gods.
Starting from 1st June 2023, travelers will be able to fly to Bali aboard an A380 superjumbo from Dubai with Emirates Airline. The double-decker plane is the world’s largest commercial passenger plane. Incredibly, the service from Dubai to I Gusti Ngurah Rai International will operate daily from the summer.
Though the first announcement of the new flight service was made last year, more details about the superset’s daily journey have been revealed by an official from Emirates.
Speaking to reporters Adnan Kazim, who is Emirates’ chief commercial officer, shared the airline’s excitement for the new service.
He said, “The Emirates A380 is synonymous with our fly better promise and world-class products and services, and we’re excited to offer our travelers the opportunity to experience its uniqueness and unmatched beauty on flights to and from Bali.”
Whether in business class or economy, the experience of flying on an Emirates A380 service is unforgettable. The daily service will depart Dubai at 3.25 am, landing in Denpasar at 4.35pm. After a quick turnaround, the return service leaves Bali at 7.40 pm, arriving in Dubai at 1 am the following morning.
The service will feature 58 business class seats in addition to 557 economy seats. This is the first time an A380 service will be operating in Indonesia, and it comes as huge news for the tourism and aviation industries.
