Malindo Air expanded its Australian network this morning with the launch of a new non-stop service between South Australia’s capital of Adelaide & Indonesia’s popular island of Bali.

A Boeing 737-800 aircraft touched down in the airline’s fourth Australian city, Adelaide, at 6.40am, bringing with 162 eager travellers, including a dozen who were lucky enough to be the first since 2016 to fly between the two destinations in Business Class.

That’s right, Business Class is back on the Adelaide-Bali route baby.


Malindo Air’s aircraft is equipped with 12 fully leather Business Class seats, each of which has recline, 45 inches of legroom, a three-pin power supply socket and an 11-inch entertainment screen.

There’s also 150 seats in Economy Class with a 32-inch seat pitch, mild recline, and extra legroom.


Adelaide Airport’s Managing Director, Mark Young, welcomed the new service, saying it was exciting to be able to offer flyers a “full-service” product to Bali and on onward to Kuala Lumpur.

“This service provides South Australian passengers with more choice when heading to two of our most popular destinations, and also creates opportunities to attract South East Asian visitors to our city and local attractions.”

The new service flies from Adelaide to Denapasar at 7.40am on Monday, Wednesday, Friday and Sunday. It then continues on from Denpasar to Kuala Lumpur. Return flights depart Bali at 12.05am.


Do you know anyone who’ll hop on the new flight in a heartbeat?
