Flights to Lombok from Perth by JetStar

Indonesia's Lombok Island is getting more popular every passing year. Just less than a week after Malaysia based budget airline AirAsia has started flights to Lombok from Kuala Lumpur, another low-cost carrier JetStar has announced its launch of flights Lombok from Perth. This new Lombok - Perth route will be the first direct flight from Australia to Lombok, an emerging tourism destination.

JetStar is planning four flights a week on the route. The route will be served by an Airbus A320, flying on Tuesday, Thursday, Friday and Sunday with a flight time of around 3 hours and 40 minutes.

Lombok Island is just right next to Bali and nicknamed as Unspoiled Bali. Lombok probably has the most remote and unspoiled beaches in the Indonesian archipelago. The island is covered with lush forests and immense mountains some of which are volcanic and provide a majestic backdrop to white sandy beaches and pristine waters. Although it is just right next to Bali and almost has the same size, the island is a relatively unknown and unspoiled tropical paradise with relatively low number of visitors. Lombok is much less developed than Bali. It appeals to travelers truly seeking a quiet island escape.

“For a long time, Australians have loved holidaying in Indonesia so it’s exciting to introduce a direct service to a new and emerging holiday destination,” said Jetstar Australia and New Zealand Chief Executive Officer, David Hall. “Indonesia has always been an important part of the group’s international network and we’re committed to enabling new travel opportunities for visitors to Indonesia as well as Indonesians keen to explore the region.”
