Dubai-based airline revives service to Indonesian island with five flights a week
Emirates is once again operating flights from Dubai to Bali, Indonesia, following a suspension of the service since 2020 due to the pandemic.
For the first time in more than two years, Emirates flight EK398 landed at Denpasar International Airport (DPS) at 22:20 on 1 May. The airline’s return was marked by a water cannon salute, and its crew and passengers were welcomed at the airport with a traditional Balinese joged bumbung dance performance. There was also a cake-cutting ceremony in the presence of representatives from DPS Airport.
Emirates is currently operating five flights a week to Bali and will scale up its operations to the island with a daily service starting from 1 July, 2022. Currently, Emirates flight EK398 departs Dubai at 09:10, landing in Bali at 21:29, with return flight EK399 departing Bali at 00:05, arriving in Dubai at 05:00.
The resumption of direct Emirates flights to Bali comes amid the continued easing of international travel restrictions, the opening of borders and the ramping up of operations across the global travel sector.
