Emirates are set to introduce the only year-round flight between Bali and Auckland with a new service launching from 14th June 2018. Originating in Dubai, the new route adds to the airlines daily services to New Zealand, making that a total of three in addition to Emirates’ existing non-stop daily service between Dubai and Auckland, and its current daily A380 service between Dubai and Christchurch via Sydney.
Travellers will also be able to enjoy a choice of three daily services between Dubai and Bali come summer, with the newly announced route adding to two existing daily services currently operated by a Boeing 777 300-ER in a two-class configuration. That same carrier will be introduced on the new Dubai-Bali-Auckland route, offering 8 seats in First Class, 42 seats in Business and 304 seats in Economy, as well as 20 tonnes of belly-hold cargo capacity.
“We’re pleased to introduce additional capacity to serve the strong demand for travel to Bali, and to Auckland”, said President of Emirates Airline Sir Tim Clark. “We are confident that our year-round service between Auckland and Bali will be well received by our customers, not only in New Zealand and Indonesia, but also from our global network particularly from markets like the UK, Europe and the Middle East”.
The southbound flight, EK450, will depart Dubai at 6:55am for an arrival at Denpasar, Bali at 20:20pm. It will then fly off to Auckland at 22:00pm to an arrival time of 10am the following day.
The northbound service will depart Auckland as flight EK451 at 12:40pm, arriving at Denpasar at 17:55pm before departing at 19:50pm. It will then return to Dubai just after midnight at 00:45am the following day.
