Emirates relaunches flights to Bali after the pandemic

Emirates landed in Bali for the first time since flights were suspended in 2020 due to the pandemic.

Emirates flight EK398 landed at Denpasar International Airport (DPS) at 10.20pm on May 1 and was greeted with a spectacular waterboarding salute to mark the airline’s return. The flight crew and passengers were welcomed at the airport with a traditional joged bumbung dance performance reflecting Bali’s unique culture and rich heritage, followed by a cake-cutting ceremony in the presence of DPS airport officials.

 Emirates’ resumption of flights to Bali comes as restrictions on international travel have been eased and global operations have expanded.

Emirates flight EK398 departs Dubai at 09:10 hours and lands in Bali at 21:29 hours. The return flight EK399 departs Bali at 00:05 hours and arrives in Dubai at 05:00 hours. The airline currently operates five-weekly services and will expand its operations on the island to daily from 1 July 2022.

Tickets can be booked at emirates.com, on the Emirates App, at Emirates sales offices, through travel agents and online.

Emirates continues to invest in the comfort and safety of its customers both in the air and on the ground. The airline has implemented a suite of measures to ensure its passengers enjoy the highest standards of safety at every stage of their journey. Customers travelling from Dubai can also take advantage of Dubai International’s contactless biometric pathway for faster check-in at the airport with little or no human interaction.
