Wednesday, 21 September 2022: Virgin Australia has relaunched services between Adelaide and Denpasar, adding to its growing list of short-haul international destinations and creating even more opportunities for South Australians to get travelling this summer.  

Taking off on 14 December 2022, the route will offer up to an additional 2,464 seats per week to Bali when operating daily and more than 70,000 extra seats to Bali each year.

To celebrate the route going on sale today, Virgin Australia has dropped Economy Lite sale fares between Adelaide and Denpasar from $399 return** with tickets available to book now until 25 September 2022 at virginaustralia.com.

Virgin Australia Group Chief Strategy & Transformation Officer, Alistair Hartley said the airline was pleased to be welcoming another short-haul international route to its network just in time for the summer holidays.

“The return of our direct services between Adelaide and Denpasar is a reflection of the growing demand we continue to see for Bali since relaunching from Sydney, Brisbane and Melbourne earlier this year and announcing our first-ever direct Gold Coast services commencing in March 2023,” Mr Hartley said.

“Adelaide is incredibly important to Virgin Australia, it’s our sixth largest port by scheduled flights, so we know this will be welcome news for South Australians and the perfect opportunity to get back to the skies with our great value fares and award-winning crew,” he said.

Adelaide Airport Managing Director, Brenton Cox said the airport was delighted to welcome Virgin Australia flights to Bali.

“There is significant pent-up demand for South Australians wanting to head out and see the world, some for the first time in three years. It’s exciting to see more international capacity deployed to fulfill this demand and we thank Virgin Australia for their investment and the vote of confidence this service provides to our Adelaide market,” Mr Cox said.

South Australian Minister for Tourism, Zoe Bettison said it was terrific to see services to Adelaide from international carriers increase, providing more options for consumers.

“This is another positive step in the return to international travel and a strong show of confidence from Virgin Australia. The State Government is working with Adelaide Airport and airlines to grow capacity and provide greater connections globally, as we aim to recover our once $8.1 billion visitor economy,” Ms Bettison said.

Virgin Australia celebrated the announcement today with a tropical juice bar pop-up in its Adelaide Lounge.

The Adelaide service will be the fifth direct route operated by Virgin Australia connecting Australians to Bali, as Virgin Australia continues to expand its short-haul international footprint with the launch of services to Indonesia (Denpasar), Fiji (Nadi) and New Zealand (Queenstown) this year and Samoa (Apia), and Vanuatu (Port Vila) in March next year.
