Budget flights to be redirected to new Bali airport at Kubutambahan 3 hours away

Published on : Monday, July 29, 2019

A new airport is set for construction in the northern village of Kubutambahan, Bali which is up to 3 hours away from the current Denpasar airport. Bali is the favourite holiday destination for the Aussies. Thousands of Aussies will be impacted by the new airport, which is located in the north of the island, far away from southern tourist spots like Kuta and Seminyak. All Australian budget flights will be redirected to the new airport when construction finishes in 2022.

 

 

 

The classic ‘cheap trip to Bali’ is potentially the cheapest, easiest, most convenient overseas holiday Aussies can take, and now it’s slightly less convenient.

 

 

 

As of 2022, roughly 70 per cent of Australian flights to Bali will be sent to Kubutambahan, taking a huge load off Denpasar, which received nearly 1 million Jetstar travellers last year.

 

 

 

Unfortunately, this means that visitors will probably have to fork out the extra cash for a non-budget trip if you want to fly via Denpasar.

 

 

 

The Indonesian Transport Minister claims that the new airport will help develop and increase tourism in the northern part of the island (the only place you can see wild dolphins in Indonesia).

 

 

 

Indonesian Transport Minister Budi Karya Sumadi told the press that all “low-cost carriers” will be redirected to the north, while “normal” full-service flights remain in Denpasar.
