After announcing in August that they would be flying to Perth from Bali, Citilink are finally launching the flights on November 8.

Return fares start from around Rp 3.5 million.

The proposed Perth to Bali service was blocked on its website after announcing its intention to fly the route. The service was due to start from October 28 but the airline then moved to block every day saying they were FULL.

There was no explanation from the airline.

The Citilink flight QG542 being sold online now leaves Denpasar at the rather inconvenient time of 1am and arrives in Perth at 4.40am, while the flight back to Bali departs at 9.40am and arrives at 1.30pm. The perfect start of a Bali holiday for Perth residents.

Citilink is a wholly-owned subsidiary of Garuda Indonesia.

The airline serves 30 destinations in Indonesia with a fleet of 57 aircraft as well as Phnom Penh in Cambodia, Kunming in China, Penang in Malaysia and Dili in East Timor.

Later this year the airline is expanding to Frankfurt and Kuala Lumpur.

Citilink will be competing with Jetstar, Batik Air, its owner Garuda, and Indonesia Air Asia on the Perth route.
