NEW ROUTE: Virgin to operate between Darwin and Denpasar

Virgin Australia is launching seasonal flights between Darwin and Denpasar, becoming the only full-service carrier to operate on this route.

Starting from April 10 2019, the airline will operate three weekly return services until October on its Boeing 737-800 aircraft, marking its first international operation from Darwin just in time for the Easter school holiday peak travel period.

“Today marks 17 years to the day since our first flight to Darwin and since then, we’ve continued to build upon our presence and make travel more accessible for Territorians,” Virgin Australia General Manager, Network, Revenue Management and Alliances, Russell Shaw said.

“Our guests will now have more choice and flexibility when looking to fly to Bali, with Virgin Australia offering what we believe is the most convenient schedule on this route, allowing for our guests to arrive well before midnight when travelling from Darwin to Bali.”

Virgin Australia currently offers flights to Bali from Brisbane, Sydney and Port Hedland and flights to Darwin from Alice Springs, Brisbane, Melbourne, Perth and Sydney.

These new seasonal flights from Darwin will add more than 1000 seats per week into this market between April and October, which will provide better travel options for guests travelling between Darwin and Bali.

To add to the travel convenience, eligible guests will also be able to access the Virgin Australia Lounge at Darwin International Airport and the Taurus Gemilang Lounge at Ngurah Rai International Airport in Denpasar before their flight departs.

Flights between Darwin and Bali will go on sale from 11:30am (AEDT), with all-inclusive airfares available from $199 one way.
