From Dubai International Airport (DXB) to Bali’s Ngurah Rai International Airport (DPS), Emirates will launch its first-ever Airbus A380 route to Indonesia in June 2023.

One of the two daily flights to DPS airport that is now operated by a two-class Boeing 777-300ER aircraft will be replaced by the two-class (business and economy) A380 service.

The new A380 DXB – DPS service will operate on the following schedule:

EK368 departs Dubai at 03:25 local time, arriving in Bali at 16:35 local time.

EK369, departs Bali at 19:40 local time, arriving in Dubai at 00:45 local time.

According to Emirates, Bali is still one of the most well-liked tourism destinations in its network and key Southeast Asian markets.

“The Emirates A380 is synonymous with our fly better promise and world-class products and services, and we’re excited to offer our travelers the opportunity to experience its uniqueness and unmatched beauty on flights to and from Bali. Needless to say that we’ve been working closely with our partners at Bali’s Ngurah Rai International Airport to ensure our A380 operations will be seamless and smooth,” Adnan Kazim, Emirates’ chief commercial officer, said in a statement.

The majority of Bali’s economy—nearly 60%—is based on tourism. An all-time high of 6.2 million foreign visitors came to the island in 2019. Bali saw a surge of 31.27% over November 2022 levels, or 377,276 visitors, according to data from Indonesia’s Central Bureau of Statistics.

According to data from the Central Bureau of Statistics, visitors to Bali in January 2023 came from a variety of countries, including Australia, Russia, India, South Korea, Singapore, Malaysia, the United Kingdom, the United States, China, and Germany.

According to The Diplomat, the Indonesian government declared in late 2022 that foreigners looking to work remotely from one of the nation’s 18,000 or so islands for up to 10 years would be able to apply for a Second Home Visa starting on December 24, 2022, which was adapted from the country’s current retirement visa.

The scheme hopes to attract more so-called ‘digital nomads’, of which Bali currently has over 5,000.
