Indonesia’s Island of the Gods may have been open to travelers from 19 countries since October, but ever-changing quarantine requirements meant that not a single scheduled international flight has landed in Bali since then. But that is set to change come the middle of February. In a Facebook post shared on Friday night, the Indonesian office of Singapore Airlines wrote, “We are pleased to inform you that Singapore Airlines will resume daily flights from Bali to Singapore starting from February 16, 2022.” SIA originally planned to restart its Bali services last year but delayed them indefinitely due to further waves of Covid-19 infection and ongoing travel restrictions.

According to Singapore Airlines’ latest flight schedules, Boeing 787-10 Dreamliners will be deployed on the route, with the journey taking about two hours and 45 minutes each way. Flight SQ 938 will depart Changi each morning at 9:05 a.m. to touch down at Bali’s Ngurah Rai International Airport at 11:50 a.m. local time. The evening return service, Flight SQ 945, is scheduled to leave Bali at 8:15 p.m. and land in Singapore at 10:55 p.m.

Singapore was not included in the October shortlist of countries whose citizens are eligible to visit Bali, though there are signs the Indonesian government is steadily easing restrictions. Last week, the national Covid-19 task force lifted the quarantine requirement for Singaporean travelers entering the islands of Batam and Bintan by ferry. Officials are now hoping to open up a similar travel bubble for Bali. On Monday, a senior minister said the isolation period for international arrivals had been cut from seven to five days; he added that Bali will gradually reopen to all foreign travelers from February 4.
