Emirates will be deploying its flagship A380 aircraft to Bali starting from June 1, 2023, marking a milestone in Indonesia’s aviation history as the first-ever scheduled A380 service to any destination within the island nation. The two-class Emirates A380 service will replace one of the two daily services to Bali currently operated by a Boeing 777-300ER aircraft. Premium passengers can look forward to an Onboard Lounge and 58 lie-flat seats in business class, while there will be 557 seats in economy.

Outbound flight EK368 will depart from Dubai International Airport at 3:25 a.m., and arrive in Denpasar’s Ngurah Rai International Airport at 4:35 p.m. local time. The returning flight, EK369, will then take off from Bali at 7:40 p.m. and touch down in Dubai at 12:45 a.m. the next day.

Adnan Kazim, Emirates’ Chief Commercial Officer, said in a statement, “Bali continues to be one of the most popular tourist destinations in our network and strategic markets in Southeast Asia, and the Emirates A380’s debut in Indonesia underscores our long-standing commitment to its travel and tourism sector.”

Emirates first launched a nonstop daily service from Dubai to Bali in 2015 – it now operates 28 weekly flights to both Bali and Jakarta. The carrier’s flagship aircraft is currently deployed to 41 destinations; that number is likely to grow to nearly 50 by the end of the summer. Tickets for the A380 service between Dubai and Bali can be purchased via the airline’s website or Emirates App, through Emirates sales offices as well as online and offline travel agents.
