Perth-Bali flights: Low fare king AirAsia returns to route

In a major boost to international and domestic travel for Western Australians, the largest low-cost airline in Asia is coming back to Perth from mid-May, as Virgin Australia and Qantas launch massive seat sales to get bums on seats.

The return of AirAsia to the Bali route is expected to start a fare war with Australia’s Jetstar which has already set the bar low with $99 fares for its first service starting on April 9.

However all those $99 fares have been snapped up and the lowest one-way lead-in fare is $149, and $95 for the return flight.

Without fanfare AirAsia, the airline that has dominated the Bali market for years, with up to four services a day, has quietly put Perth to Bali flights back into its system with six flights a week from May 15, 2022.
