$99 Bali flights as AirAsia expands

8 July 2009

Low-cost airline AirAsia is offering Perth to Bali airfares from $99 to mark the addition of a second daily flight to this route.

The airline starts flying from Perth to Bali route from July 17 and said it would add a second daily flight from August 19.

Earlier this year people snapped up airline seats in just three hours after it announced it would operate on the route.

Regional head of commercial of the AirAsia group, Kathleen Tan, said the group was confident the Bali-Perth route would perform well.

“The huge response clearly demonstrates a demand for this connection. Likewise, there is a strong Indonesian community residing and pursuing studies in WA.

“Our loads for the forthcoming three months are running past 90% and we feel it is timely to add a second frequency. We stay true to our brand promise and are committed to offering the lowest fares and best value to our guests,” Ms Tan said.

“In addition, guests can look forward to our Bali hub as a gateway to connect to Bangkok, Singapore, Kuala Lumpur, Jakarta and another recently added popular tourist spot, Bandung, all at our amazing low fares.”

Promotional flights on the Bali-Perth route will be on sale from July 9-12 for travel from August 19 to April 30, 2010.

These seats are limited and available on a first-come, first-served basis and bookings can be made exclusively online via and

The new route will be served by AirAsia’s brand new Airbus A320 aircraft.
