Gulf carrier Emirates is set to expand its network in Indonesia this year by connecting its hub in Dubai with Indonesia’s most popular tourist destination, Bali.
During the Dubai–Bali daily flight service launching on 3 June 2015, Emirates executive vice president and chief commercial officer Thierry Antinori said “Bali is a significantly important market for Emirates. There is a high interest in Bali from across our network, specifically in the leisure segment. Dubai would connect passengers from Bali to more than 80 destinations across Europe, the Middle East, Africa and America” .
The non-stop daily flight service is served by a Boeing B777-3000 Extended Range (ER) with a two class configuration. He added that the Island of Gods would become the carrier’s 148th global destination and strengthen its networks in the Asia-Pacific region, which spans 23 points in 13 countries.
Beginning in March two years ago, Emirates started offering three non-stop flights daily from Jakarta to Dubai.
