Emirates will launch a new daily service to the island of Bali in Indonesia from 3rd June 2015. One of the most popular islands in Indonesia with spectacular mountains and picturesque beaches, Bali is a leading tourist destination that welcomed more than 3.7 million foreign tourist arrivals in 2014.
Bali will be Emirates’ 148th global destination, adding to the airline’s route network in the Asia Pacific region, which currently spans 23 destinations in 13 countries. The non-stop service between Dubai and Bali will be operated by a B777-300ER in a two-class configuration.
“Bali is a significantly important market for Emirates,” said Thierry Antinori, Executive Vice President and Chief Commercial Officer. “There is high interest in Bali from across our network, specifically in the leisure segment. We are pleased to be able to offer the Emirates product on a daily basis, connecting passengers in Bali to Dubai and to more than 80 destinations in Europe, the Middle East, Africa and the Americas, via one convenient stop in Dubai.”
Emirates’ new daily flight to Bali will depart Dubai as EK398 at 08.20hrs and arrive at Bali’s Denpasar International Airport at 21.40hrs. The return flight, EK399, will depart at 23.40 and arrive at Dubai International Airport at 05.00 the next day.
Throughout all cabin classes, passengers can enjoy more than 2,000 channels of entertainment on demand on ice, the airline’s award-winning inflight entertainment system. Passengers on all Emirates flights also have baggage allowances of 30kg in Economy Class and 40kg in Business Class.
Emirates commenced services to Indonesia in 1992 with three flights per week via Singapore and Colombo, and since March 2013 has been operating three non-stop flights daily from Jakarta to Dubai with a B777.
