Emirates has operated its first flight to Bali since the suspension of services in 2020 due to the pandemic.

Emirates flight EK398 landed in Denpasar International Airport (DPS) at 22:20 on May 1, and was welcomed by a spectacular water cannon salute to inaugurate the airline’s return.

Passengers and crew were also met with a traditional "joged bumbung" dance performance, which reflects Bali’s unique culture and rich heritage, and that was followed by a cake cutting ceremony in attendance of representatives from DPS Airport.

The resumption of Emirates’ services to Bali comes with the easing of international travel restrictions and ramping up of global operations.

The airline is currently operating five-weekly services and will scale up its operations to the island with a daily service starting from July 1.
