Singapore Airlines flying again to Bali from 3 th May 2021
Tuesday, 13 April 2021 05:48
Singapore Airlines resuming flights directly to Bali from 4 May 2021, only twice a week every Tuesday and Friday. SIA is deploying its 162-seat Boeing 737-800 aircraft on the Bali route twice per week from 4th May 2021, an aircraft type recently introduced to the fleet as part of the merger of SilkAir into the mainline carrier.At this stage, flights remain restricted to those eligible to enter Indonesia, such as Indonesian nationals, those with a temporary or permanent residence visa (KITAS/KITAP) or an APEC Business Travel Card. A negative pre-departure COVID-19 PCR test is required within 72 hours of departure, with a second test and five days of quarantine imposed on arrival.
The current Singapore Airlines schedule is confirmed through to 31st May 2021, after which the carrier’s normal full flight program is published, pending further revision closer to the time. Similar twice-weekly flights will be confirmed for June 2021.
In January 2020, prior to COVID-19, there were 125 flights per week in each direction on the Singapore – Bali route, operated by the following carriers:
- AirAsia: 28/wk
- Garuda: 7/wk
- Scoot: 21/wk
- SilkAir: 7/wk
- Jetstar: 27/wk
- KLM: 7/wk
- SIA: 28/wk
Unfortunately the Boeing 737-800s are a bit of a step-down from SIA’s wide-body aircraft, with recliner seats in Business Class and no seat-back entertainment system installed. Bali looks set to join the list of destinations opening up to tourism again in the second half of 2021, and these flights by Singapore Airlines from May mark the start of the carrier’s intent to be at the forefront of the plans.
