Bali International Airport is OPEN

Bali International Airport is OPEN –  TRAVEL UPDATE

The first international flight in almost 2 years has landed at Bali International Airport, 3 February 2022.  A huge step forward as we approach 24 months of COVID and reflect on the impact no international travel into Bali has had on the Lembongan community.

We hope this will see the beginning of a new normal, where people can travel to Bali and beyond, with relatively limited restrictions.

 

When did BALI International Airport open?

Bali International Airport has officially been “open” since October 2021, however the first plane landed last night, 3 February.  The was a lot of anticipation as its been a long time coming and we hope this is the start of a new flow of visitors to Bali.
