Bali Ngurah Rai, otherwise known as Denpasar (DPS) is a large international airport with daily flights from over 30 international destinations, including Bangkok, Hong Kong, Manila, Singapore, Dubai, Amsterdam, Seoul, Kuala Lumpur and many cities in Australia. You can also take a flight from Bali to connect with international flights through Jakarta Soekarno-Hatto airport (CGK) which is the 8th busiest airport in the world and has international departures to even more cities including London, Paris, Doha and Tokyo.
On arrival we will arrange for you to be collected from the airport or a hotel. Due to the transfer timetable to Nusa Lembongan any passengers arriving at the airport after 16:00 wishing to travel to Nusa Lembongan will need to book into a hotel in Bali. Just let us know which hotel and we will arrange to collect you and get you on the first boat of the day. Alternatively we can organise a hotel for you.
On departure we will arrange for your return in a similar way. If you need to be at the airport before 10.30 you will need to leave Nusa Lembongan the day before and book you into a hotel in Bali, which we can organise for you. Please contact us to arrange any specific requirements and transfers.
Denpasar also services domestic flights from all over Indonesia, including direct flights from Manado, Lombok and Jakarta. You can also fly to or from almost anywhere in Indonesia using connecting flights. The main internal carriers are Lion Air and Garuda, the national airline of Indonesia.
