The start of the flight program is scheduled for January 29 Tours on such transportation will cost 10–15% cheaper due to redeemed seats than tickets from GDS systems. We learned about the details, prices, demand and nuances of entering Bali from the tour operator's specialists.
Russian Express bought blocks of seats on Emirates connecting flights to Denpasar . Flights will be operated from January 29 on Saturdays and Sundays.
“To date, this is the most comfortable flight to Bali with minimal connections – 2 hours 50 minutes on the way to Denpasar and 3 hours 50 minutes on the way back. Docking is carried out in Dubai,” says Russian Express.
According to experts, tours on such transportation will cost 10-15% cheaper due to purchased seats than tickets from GDS systems. The duration of the tour packages is from 13 to 15 days, including the flight.
BLOCK TOURS TO BALI WILL BE UNTIL THE END OF MARCH
Guaranteed flight program is calculated until the end of March 2023 with the possibility of renewal.
As noted in the Russian Express, winter and the beginning of spring are a great time to relax in Bali. The period from November to April is considered the wet season. At this time, the island is very green and everything is in bloom, and tropical showers usually come in the morning and last only an hour.
“Most of our tourists book 5* hotels in Nusa Dua and Jimbaran. The share of combined tours – with a visit to Ubud – is about 30%. If we compare the demand for Bali with another popular tourist destination – Thailand, then Indonesia is chosen mainly by young couples. In Thailand, they have more holidays with children, which is largely due to the possibility of a direct flight to Bangkok and Phuket,” the company clarifies.

POSSIBLE IN BALI WITH AN EXPIRED RUSSIAN VACCINATION CERTIFICATE
Now, according to both Russian Express and other tour operators, the demand for Bali is not so high now, as it was in 2019.
There are entry restrictions on the island – current regulations require a full vaccination certificate (minimum 2 doses of any vaccine), and Sputnik Light only as a 3rd dose. Vaccination is valid 14 days after the second component is given and the certificate is received.
It should be noted that the certificate does not expire (that is, you can go to Bali with an expired one). Children from 0 to 17.99 years old do not need a vaccination certificate.
