AirAsia launches promotional cheap flights from Perth to Lombok International Airport for as little as $195

AirAsia launches return flight from Perth to Lombok for as little as $195. ‘The new Bali’ is  predicted to become a thriving tourist destination for many Australians’.

Yes, you read that right. AirAsia has launched a bunch of budget-friendly prices on some awesome holiday destinations, so get booking.

Escape the cold weather this June and book a return flight from Perth to Lombok for as little as $195. Once you add on luggage and all the necessities it will still cost you less than a trip to Melbourne; it’s a no brainer.

AirAsia is offering cheap one-way fares to a tropical Indonesian island, which has been tipped to take the top spot as the favourite destination for Australians.

The budget airline announced its new four-time weekly flights between Perth and Lombok, east of Bali this week.

The airline said the hub, its fifth in Indonesia,  was part of efforts to support an Indonesian government initiative to develop the island as one of “10 new Balis”

It unveiled a new “I love Lombok”  livery featuring Lombok tourist attractions such as Mount Rinjani the nearby Gili Islands on an Airbus A320 that will operate the flights to Perth.

Jetstar pulled Perth-Lombok services in 2014 after failing to make the route work, saying it was not seeing enough demand to sustain services despite efforts to promote the island as a tourist destination.

The new Perth flights, operating as QZ470 outbound from Lombok and QZ471 outbound from Perth, will operate Monday, Wednesday, Friday and Sunday.

Jetsetters can snag the cheap flights until March 24, to travel between June 9 and October 26. Australian sun-seekers are expected to flock to the new destination, which has been described as ‘the new Bali’. Lombok, east of Bali, has geared up to become the next tourism hotspot with promises of endless blissful beaches.

Nature-lovers will be in their element thanks to the spectacular mountains, lush greenery and epic waves.

AirAsia Indonesia chief executive Dendy Kurniawan told The West the short flights from Perth would help transform the island into a thriving destination. ‘The development of Lombok as an AirAsia hub will also catalyse healthy growth and competition in Indonesia. By stimulating the market with low fares, we want to provide more opportunities for Australians and Indonesians to fly.’

Tourists will be welcomed to the island as it continues to recover from the series of deadly earthquakes that struck last year.

A spokeswoman for Air Asia said AirAsia’s commitment to developing a new hub in the West Nusa Tenggara province would accelerate post-earthquake recovery efforts and lay the foundations for the Indonesian Government’s sustainable development initiative to create ’10 new Balis’.

‘The new service between Perth and Lombok also provides a welcome boost to the local tourism and visitor economy and, in coming months, AirAsia will unveil the number of upcoming seat reservations for the approaching high season on Lombok Island.

Lombok Island | The latest AirAsia Hubspot

AirAsia has inaugurated its newest hub on Indonesia’s Lombok ahead of starting four times weekly service to West Australian capital Perth from June 9.

The move comes as Australian and Indonesian officials are trying to rejuvenate tourism on the island after it was rocked by earthquakes in 2018.

AirAsia’s philanthropic arm, AirAsia Foundation, was also involved in relief efforts after the earthquakes.

It unveiled a new “I love Lombok”  livery featuring Lombok tourist attractions such as Mount Rinjani the nearby Gili Islands on an Airbus A320 that will operate the flights to Perth.

AirAsia Indonesia will base two aircraft in Lombok with plans to connect domestic destinations such as Bali, Jakarta and Yogyakarta in the near future.

AirAsia has been flying to Lombok from Kuala Lumpur since 2012 and says it has carried more than 1 million visitors to the island during that time.

But it remains to be seen whether it can generate interest in Lombok among West Australians.

Jetstar pulled Perth-Lombok services in 2014 after failing to make the route work, saying it was not seeing enough demand to sustain services despite efforts to promote the island as a tourist destination.

The new Perth flights, operating as QZ470 outbound from Lombok and QZ471 outbound from Perth, will operate Monday, Wednesday, Friday and Sunday.

AirAsia Indonesia chief executive Dendy Kurniawan said Lombok was a destination with rich tourism charms that held a special place in many people’s hearts.

“Today’s announcement will not only enhance international and domestic connectivity, but also create local job opportunities, stimulate tourism growth, and contribute to Lombok’s vitally important visitor economy,” he said.

AirAsia’s other Indonesian hubs are in Jakarta, Surabaya, Medan and Bali.

Kurniawan said data from Indonesia’s  Ministry of Tourism showed AirAsia continued to be the biggest contributor to international visitors to the country.

He said it accounted for about 3.2 million arrivals or 25 percent of all international visitors to the country in 2018.
