International flights to Bali have continued to grow since the Indonesian government opened international borders. This is because the demand for foreign tourists to vacation on the island of the gods has increased dramatically. They are tired of staying at home since the covid-9 spread worldwide, and it has limited their movement. Now, they want to enjoy their vacation, and Bali is one of their destinations. Meanwhile, the Indonesian government has provided many facilities for foreign tourists to enter Indonesia, such as abolishing quarantine regulations and granting Visa on Arrival facilities. This certainly helps the recovery of Bali tourism, which has slumped since the Covid-19 pandemic.
The Bali Provincial Government noted that the number of foreign tourists entering Bali until March 7, 2022, had reached more than 2,000 people. This increase aligns with the increasing number of foreign airlines that reactivate flights at I Gusti Ngurah Rai Airport. Airplanes serving routes to Bali from overseas include Garuda Indonesia, Singapore Airlines, Air Asia, KLM Royal Dutch, Jet Star, Scoot, Malaysia Airlines, and Turkish Airlines. Meanwhile, most flight routes come from Australia, such as Sydney, Melbourne, and Perth. Narita, Singapore, Kuala Lumpur, Doha, and Istanbul are five more routes.
Effect of International Flights to Bali Increase, Foreign Tourist Also Increasingly
In line with the increase in international flights to Bali, foreign tourist visits are increasing. Bali’s tourism life is getting better day by day with the arrival of foreign tourists to this paradise island. Hotels, restaurants, and several tourist attractions closed due to covid-19, but now they have reopened. Workers have carried out their activities even though they are still in the limited phase. The economic life of Bali is increasing day by day, and it is a breath of fresh air for the Balinese.
Meanwhile, the readiness of tourist attractions is almost 100% ready to accept tourist arrivals. Also, most Balinese have already received the second and even third vaccine (Vaccine Booster). This can answer the doubts of foreign tourists that Bali is safe to visit. The implementation of CHSE in every tourist spot was implemented two years ago and is now being maintained properly. Likewise, the development of the COVID-19 virus has greatly decreased, which opens up opportunities for everyone to be free to do outdoor activities.
