AirAsia is returning to Darwin with services to Bali set to resume on 1 July 2013.

The airline will resume four weekly flights to Australias favourite holiday playground with improved departure and arrival times.

To celebrate the relaunch of the route, travellers can snap up special sale fares with one way flights to Denpasar on offer from A$129 one way. The one way sale fare from Denpasar back to Darwin is priced from A$99. The fares are on sale from 22 to 28 April 2013 and valid for travel from 1st July 2013 to 30th April 2014. Terms and conditions apply.

AirAsia Indonesia is back in town and were bigger and better than ever, said AirAsia Indonesia CEO, Captain Dharmadi. Darwin Airport and the Northern Territory Government have worked hard to get us back and were excited to again provide Territorians with more choice and competition when it comes to their favourite holiday destination. Beautiful Bali is a very popular short break destination for Territorians because of its easy access from Darwin. And to celebrate our return, AirAsia Indonesia will get travellers there for less with an incredible launch fare now on offer from just A$129 one way to Bali.

Flights will depart from Darwin to Bali on Monday, Wednesday, Friday and Sunday at 19:30 arriving at 20:40 with a total flight time of two hours and 35 minutes. The route will again be operated by an Airbus A320 aircraft.

Return flights depart Denpasar at 14:50 local time and will arrive into Darwin at 18:55.

AirAsia Indonesia Director of Commercial, Bernard Francis, said the airline had regrettably cancelled the route last year to concentrate on its high-demand and high-yield routes to help maintain operational efficiencies. However, he said AirAsia Indonesia had grown considerably and achieved record profits which had allowed it to resume the Darwin to Bali service.

We acknowledge the inconvenience caused by our withdrawal from this market a year ago, Mr Francis said. However, we have worked hard to resume the service and we are committed to working with our industry partners to make it a success. Arrival and departure times on the previous service were often inconvenient and a frequent complaint from guests. We have now improved our schedule and made getting to and from Bali even easier.

AirAsia Indonesia is also adding additional frequency to its highly successful Perth-Bali services from triple daily to four times daily. In addition, the airline is also introducing a three times weekly service between Bali and Kota Kinabalu, Malaysia, which further underlines its commitment to provide greater connectivity to and from Australia.

Northern Territory Airports Director Airline and Airport Services Jim Parashos said, We are absolutely thrilled to have AirAsia Indonesia flying from Darwin. While we understood the reasons for the withdrawal previously, we always felt that AirAsia Indonesia would resume operations when the time was right ... Since the withdrawal of services, the Darwin market has continued to grow, driven largely by increased resources activity. AirAsia Indonesia will resume with a schedule that will suit everyone, including families and the growing FIFO market.
