Virgin Australia will become the first Australian carrier ever to offer direct flights between the Gold Coast and Bali, connecting two of the world’s premier surfing destinations from next year.
Commencing on 29 March 2023 and available to book from today, services between the Gold Coast Airport’s new International Terminal and Bali will operate daily, with more than 2,200 seats available each week.
The announcement comes as Virgin Australia prepares to recommence flights to Bali from Sydney from tomorrow and Melbourne and Brisbane from Friday 17 June.
Virgin Australia’s Short Haul International operations continue to grow, with Virgin Australia also soon planning to resume services to both Vanuatu and Samoa alongside its services to Fiji, Bali and Queenstown, New Zealand.
Direct services from Brisbane to Port Vila, Vanuatu will commence on 10 March 2023 with up to five flights a week. Services to Apia, Samoa will commence from Sydney on 21 March 2023 with up to three flights per week and from Brisbane on 23 March 2023 with up to two flights per week.
The addition of Samoa and Vanuatu to Virgin Australia’s network will give holiday makers a greater choice of Pacific Island destinations as well as provide those wanting to reconnect with friends and family the opportunity to do so as both destinations open to international travel post COVID-19.
