It’ll help cater to the increasing demand of tourists coming from India to Bali,” said,

The two island cities have diverse lifestyles.

Connections between Mumbai and Bali follow the launch of Garuda Indonesia’s flights between Mumbai and Jakarta on 12 December 2016 after an 18 year gap on the route.

Bali is popular among tourists seeking quality holiday at affordable rates. It is among the favourite destinations for Indian honeymooners. Waving off of visa fee and introduction of a visa-on arrival facility by Government of Indonesia have already boosted travel market from India and new direct connections will further enhance tourist traffic to Bali. A Malaysian visa is not required for the brief stop-over.

Arun Iyer, Managing Director, My Golf Tours, said: “Bali is also very popular with golf tourists from India. Direct flights will definitely be a boon to all travellers.”

New Mumbai to Bali flights further connect with to Air Asia’s network within Indonesia like Jogjakarta, Jakarta, Solo, Medan and Bandung and further with Darwin and Perth in Australia.
