Low cost Indonesian airline, Citilink will launch a daily Denpasar to Perth service from October 28 with their 180-seat Airbus A320 aircraft.
Special launch fares have not been announced as yet but travel agents expect some special deals to formally launch the service.
Currently, the return fare from October is showing on its website from around $A 215.00.
According to the website, baggage is already included in the price.
The Citilink flight QG542 leaves Denpasar at 1.10am and arrives in Perth at 4.50am (woah! Ed), while the flight back to Bali departs at 9.50am and arrives at 1.30pm…. perfect for an early check-in coming back.
Citilink is a wholly-owned subsidiary of Garuda Indonesia and 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 also expanding to Frankfurt and Kuala Lumpur.
CitiLink will do battle in this very competitive but very popular route with Jetstar, Batik Air, Garuda, and Air Asia Indonesia.
