The COVID-19 outbreak forced Jetstar Australia to suspend its flights to Bali for more than two years. As a result, the airline has now restored service to Bali. The airline’s Boeing 787-8 arrived at Ngurah Rai International Airport today, March 14, 2022, marking the beginning of the company’s return of operations.
“After two long years…we are certain that Bali will rapidly recover its place as our most popular international tourist destination now that borders have been opened,” said Jetstar CEO Gareth Evans of the company’s return to the island.
Jetstar Australia used to operate up to 85 return flights to Bali every week before they decided to discontinue service in March of 2020.
As countries such as Bali and Australia relax their own travel restrictions, Jetstar is ready to reclaim a portion of the international market for itself. This is especially true given that Australians have historically been among the most popular visitors in Bali who travel by plane.
In addition, the tourist sector in Bali, which was badly affected by the epidemic and is estimated to account for upwards of 50% of the country’s income, would benefit from this development.
Flight JQ 43 took off from Melbourne’s Tullamarine Airport on Monday morning, and the 300 passengers were greeted by traditional dancers as they arrived at Ngurah Rai International Airport in Indonesia.
You should be aware of the following information if you want to go to Bali:
When you arrive, there is no quarantine. You must have had all of your vaccinations.
COVID-19 is covered by medical travel insurance, which you must have. You must have a negative PCR test before arriving in Bali, and you must do another PCR test on the third day of your stay in Bali. It’s only necessary to isolate for 5 days if you get a positive test while you are there.
