It goes without saying that Aussies froth over a good old trip to Bali. And the demand for travel to the Indonesian island is so hot right now that Malino Air is launching a daily non-stop service there.

The Malaysian airline will start the non-stop daily service between Melbourne and Denpasar from June 8, 2018.

The prices on these new flights are competitive with Malindo already advertising $589 return flights in Economy and $1699 return flights in Business Class.

The full service carrier which has hubs in Kuala Lumpur and Penang already flies to Denpasar from Brisbane and Perth.

The new flights will ramp up capacity to Bali by adding an extra 118,260 seats per year.

Melbourne Airport Chief of Aviation Simon Gandy said he was pleased to see the increase in capacity on the popular Melbourne-Bali route.

“Since the 2014 financial year Indonesia has been one of the top three international destinations for Victorian holidaymakers and demand to visit Bali has proven to be strong and resilient over time,”

“On behalf of Melbourne Airport I congratulate Malindo Air for introducing this new daily service, Victorians are going to love having more choice and flexibility,” Gandy went on to say.

Minister for Tourism and Major Events John Eren said securing the new Malindo Air service would boost access to Malaysia and Indonesia.
