Tigerair Australia has begun operating daily return flights to Denpasar from Melbourne and Perth alongside five weekly return flights from Adelaide to Denpasar, marking the carrier's first international routes.
Furthermore, the new routes will offer passengers the opportunity to access a mix of free and paid wireless in-flight entertainment for use on their own devices for the first time.
“This is a significant milestone for Tigerair Australia as we continue to grow in line with consumer demand,” commented Tigerair Australia CEO, Rob Sharp. “Bali is renowned as a popular holiday destination for many Australians looking for an affordable tropical holiday year round and we are confident our new services will prove popular with our core market of leisure travellers.”
The carrier is using three recently reconfigured Boeing 737-800 aircraft for the new services which feature 180 economy seats, including five rows of seats with extra legroom (18 seats in the front of the cabin and 12 seats in exit rows). Tigerair Australia estimates the flights will deliver over 6,800 additional visitor seats through Denpasar Airport each week.
