Several carriers have recently reinstated direct international flights to Bali, which is a province of the Indonesian island of Bali. Malaysia Carriers and KLM Royal Dutch are the most recent airlines to reintroduce these routes to the schedule.
Today, a direct flight from Kuala Lumpur to Denpasar touched down at Ngurah Rai International Airport, which serves as Bali’s major airport.
Denpasar is the capital of Bali, and as such, it is a famous tourist destination. Flights to the city have been operated by Malaysia Airlines for many years.
Due to the coronavirus epidemic, foreign planes were barred from landing in Bali for more than a year. However, the island of Bali has just issued new entrance limits and has relaxed quarantine limitations for international visitors.
After a two-year hiatus, KLM Royal Dutch resumed direct international flights to Bali on March 9, operating the Singapore-Denpasar route once again. Flight KL 835, with 76 passengers, arrived at Ngurah Rai International Airport at 7:45 p.m.
At 9:34 p.m., the jet made a U-turn and returned to Singapore with 15 people on board.
People who were enthusiastic about the resumption of international flights to Bali greeted the plane’s arrival at Ngurah Rai International Airport with magnificent water salutes, which symbolized their joy at the restoration of international flights.
In addition to the following most recent returning carriers, the following have also resumed direct international flights to Bali from other parts of the world:
Garuda Indonesia is a national airline based in Jakarta, Indonesia (Sydney-Denpasar, Narita-Denpasar)
Flights from Singapore to Denpasar are operated by JetStar Asia Airways, Scoot TigerAir, and Singapore Airlines (Singapore-Denpasar)
The general manager of Ngurah Rai International Airport, Herry A.Y. Sikado, is optimistic about the resumption of flights. Sikado remarked that direct international flights will aid in the restoration of Bali’s tourist sector to its former glory.
In the year 2019, more than 6 million foreign visitors visited Bali. Despite the fact that the coronavirus epidemic dominated most of 2020, more than 1 million international visitors visited the province before it was forced to seal its gates.
In 2021, less than 50 foreign visitors are expected to arrive.
Since the beginning of February, the restart of several flights, along with the relaxation of COVID-19 restrictions, has resulted in the arrival of hundreds of foreign visitors.
COVID-19 limitations have not been completely lifted in Bali. A court lawsuit is now being heard to decide whether or not the province should completely eliminate its tourist quarantine restrictions.
