AIRASIA Indonesia finally reopen scheduled flight services to the Labuan Bajo destination from Bali starting May 20, 2022 with scheduled flights four times a week, every Monday, Wednesday, Friday and Sunday.

This flight service uses an Airbus A320 aircraft with a capacity of 180 passengers. Each passenger on this flight gets 20 kg of free baggage allowance and 7 kg of cabin baggage.

According to the President Director of AirAsia Indonesia, Veranita Yosephine through a press release, recently said we are very grateful to our loyal customers and all Indonesian people who continue to support our presence in their favorite destinations.

“This support makes us even more excited to prepare more of our fleet to accommodate additional operations on other routes that have the potential to reopen,” said Veranita Yosephine.

She explained, with the abolition of the COVID-19 test requirement for foreign tourists who have been fully vaccinated to enter Indonesia, there is the potential for a huge increase in the number of bookings in the next few weeks, especially from Australia to Bali which also coincides with the winter holiday there.

“By taking advantage of this moment, we hope that Australian tourists who fly to Bali and want to continue their vacation in Labuan Bajo can use this flight service that we have just reopened,” she remarked.

Furthermore, AirAsia sees a strategic role in improving the interconnectivity of Labuan Bajo with other destinations through Bali which is directly connected to various international and domestic destinations.

Domestic tourists from various regions such as Jakarta, Bandung, Yogyakarta, Solo, and Surabaya can also connect to Labuan Bajo via Bali. Meanwhile, foreign tourists, not only Australia, but also tourists from Malaysia, Thailand and Singapore can use AirAsia’s flight services to Labuan Bajo via Bali.
