Jetstar To Fly To Bali and Wellington

17th Dec 2014

Bali, the most popular resort destination in Asia, will soon become accessible to Aussie travelers from Cairns in the northeastern coast of Queensland.

Starting March 29, 2015, Aussie travelers wanting to spend their holidays in the resort island destination need not go to either Darwin or Sydney to get to Bali.

Currently, Jetstar has direct services between Bali and six major cities in Australia, namely, Adelaide, Brisbane, Darwin, Melbourne, Perth, and Sydney.

The Cairns-Bali route will be launched today by Jetstar, offering one-way tickets for as low as $99 between now and Thursday midnight. It will be a three-times weekly service.

Also to be launched by March 30 next year is the Melbourne-Wellington route, the airline's fourth direct trans-Tasman service. It will be on a four-times weekly frequency, departing Melbourne every Monday, Wednesday, Friday, and Saturday.

The low-cost airline is now holding a tickets sale for the Cairns-Bali route offering one-way fares for as low as $99.

Jetstar Australia/NewZealand CEO, John Hall, expressed his pleasure in the launching of the Cairns-Bali service today, as it is the first and only airline offering a direct service between the two destinations.

Bali has been popular with Aussie tourists for years, as it is the closest world-class resort destination which can be reached between 4 and 7 hours by air from mainland Australia. It has become the default tropical resort destination for most Aussie vacationers for their week-end getaway abroad.

Aside from the Bali and Wellington routes, the airline will also launch the Gold Coast-Perth route next year, as it continues to expand its domestic network.
