New International Flight Connects Australian Tourists To Bali

Share The Article

A new international flight service between Australia and Bali will prove to be a game-changer for holidaymakers come the long school holidays in June.

Australian tourists are consistently among the most frequent visitors to Bali, and increased connectivity will only serve to strengthen this special relationship.

Batik Air will launch a new service between Bali’s I Gusti Ngurah Rai International Airport and Canberra Airport on June 13th, 2024.

The service will run three times weekly, connecting the Australian capital with the Island of the Gods. 

Flight tickets are on sale now, and with Batik Air being a traveler’s favorite budget airline, tourists can expect great value and tickets to be sold out long in advance.

The flight service will depart Canberra at 8 am, arriving in Denpasar at 12.50 pm. This outbound service will run every Wednesday, Friday, and Sunday. 

The return flight from Bali to Canberra will take off from I Gusti Ngurah Rai International at 10.10 pm and arrive in Canberra at 7 am the following morning. The service runs every Tuesday, Thursday, and Saturday. 

Batik Air is one of the most well-connected airlines in Asia, with flight services from Bali to Bangkok, Kuala Lumpur, Auckland, Brisbane, Sydney, Melbourne, and Perth every week.

More destinations are in the pipeline, so budget-conscious travelers should keep an eye on Batik Air’s deals for new flights and promotions. 

Bali Airport is becoming increasingly well-connected. Just last week, a new daily flight service went underway between Bengaluru and Bali.

The new service offers Indian tourists a much-needed second option for traveling to Bali.

Until last year, there were no direct flights between Bali and India. Now, there are two, with a daily service from New Delhi to Bali, and now the service between Bangalore and Bali.

Bengaluru, often referred to as Bangalore, is the third most populous city in India, and the new service suddenly opened up and world of travel opportunities for Indian tourists base in the central-south of the country.

Tourists planning their vacations in Bali can anticipate more direct flight services to be operated internationally in the coming month.

Officials from Bali Airport are constantly looking for ways to increase the flight schedule and connect Bali to new destinations around the world.

One of the biggest changes to the flight schedule in Bali over the last 12 months was the introduction of the daily flight on the A380 by Emirates to and from Dubai.


Now, the world’s largest commercial aircraft lands in Bali on a daily basis, carrying travels from the United Arab Emirates. The aircraft can carry over 600 passengers, and in its first 100 days of service, the Dubai-Bali-Dubai route served over 110,000 passengers

With so many more tourists coming to Bali, major upgrades are underway at the international arrivals terminal.

Construction teams are now working on installing the second phase of autogates at the arrivals hall. These autogates work off facial recognition technology and border control management systems. 


The autogates can be used by Indonesian passport holders, and tourists who are either from visa-exempt countries, or who have applied for and been granted an electronic visa, including the e-voa.

Installation teams have been given strict instructions to fastback the process as much as possible to ensure that the next set of 30 autogates will be up and running before June, when not only the new Canberra-Bali flight with Batik Air will launch but also the start of the busiest peak of the high season for holidaymakers on the island.


At the moment, Bali welcomes around 15,000 international arrivals a day, but at the peak of the high season, upwards of 30,000 arrivals are processed through Bali Airport every day.

Speechless! More than ever in Bali. This island is already choked up. It’s like Americans escaping to Mexico and driving up the local prices be it in properties or hotels in Mexico. Gentrification indeed!! Hawaii is bit far from the mainland but it is still in the US though and still pricey as well. Sigh...

So happy that Batik will be starting flights from Canberra - it's just a shame that they cancelled the direct flights from Adelaide on the same day! Not a happy traveller
