Virgin Australia is relaunching its Adelaide-Bali service to coincide with the southern hemisphere summer holiday period by offering promotional fares starting from AU$399 RT. This special fare can be booked now for travel commencing on 14 December 2022.
The new flight route will operate daily, resulting in 2,464 additional weekly seats between the two destinations.
More seats connecting Bali and Australia will come online in March 2023 when Virgin Australia starts the first-ever direct service between the Gold Coast and Denpasar.
Virgin Australia Group Chief Strategy & Transformation Officer Alistair Hartley said the airline was pleased to be welcoming another short-haul international route to its network just in time for the summer holidays.
“The return of our direct services between Adelaide and Denpasar reflects the growing demand for travel to Bali since relaunching flights from Sydney, Brisbane, and Melbourne earlier this year and the recent announcement of our first-ever direct Gold Coast services commencing in March 2023,” Hartley said.
“Adelaide is incredibly important to Virgin Australia, it’s our sixth largest port by scheduled flights, so we know this will be welcome news for South Australians and the perfect opportunity to get back to the skies with our great value fares and award-winning crew,” he said.
Adelaide Airport Managing Director Brenton Cox said the airport was delighted to welcome Virgin Australia flights to Bali. “There is significant pent-up demand from South Australians wanting to head out and see the world, some for the first time in three years. It’s exciting to see more international capacity deployed to fulfill this demand. We thank Virgin Australia for their investment and the vote of confidence this service provides to our Adelaide market,” Cox said.
The Adelaide service will be the fifth direct route operated by Virgin Australia, connecting Australians to Bali, as Virgin Australia continues to expand its short-haul international footprint with the launch of services to Indonesia (Denpasar), Fiji (Nadi), and New Zealand (Queenstown) this year and Samoa (Apia), and Vanuatu (Port Vila) in March next year.
