COVID-19: Bali to fully open 14 March 2022

COVID-19: Bali to fully open 14 March 2022

The current 3-day quarantine requirement of international travel will be dropped from Monday 14 March and replaced with self-isolation for a few hours between your arrival test at the airport and getting your negative result. You will also need a test – like the resurrection – on the 3rd day.

You will also need to have proof of your vaccination and a hotel booking of at least 4 nights post-arrival. Some Indonesian spokespeople are saying it could even happen earlier depending on infection and vaccination rates

Garuda and Jetstar flying

Garuda is scheduling a direct Sydney to Bali flight, but only one per week starting on Friday 4 March. The return leg travels via Jakarta. Jetstar will fly a B787 from Melbourne to Bali (Denpasar) on 14 March, with Brisbane and Sydney scheduled to restart in April.

This is another timely reminder to wear your seatbelt when seated. Holding you close to your seat will protect you from the sort of injuries sustained on this flight, when unsecured passengers flew to the ceiling of the aircraft, and then came crashing down once the ‘drop’ ceased.

The hope will be that this is an anomaly – a ‘freak accident’ in casual parlance. If it is a systemic error either mechanical or electronic, then this is a larger concern for the airlines that fly Boeing Dreamliner 787 aircraft. Let’s hope it isn’t. If it is, it will pile on the woes to Boeing’s existing stack.

This will be great news for Bali that depends on tourism, and Australian tourists particularly, which represent 25% of the overall traffic to the exotic island.

Bali is a favourite of mine, despite the ungodly hours that most of the 6 hour direct flights run on their return to Sydney. Book me into the Four Seasons at Sayan immediately!
