Due to new Indonesian government legislation regarding travel between Australia and Indonesia, Tigerair has cancelled all flights between Australia and Denpasar. Releasing a statement via their website, Tigerair said:  

Tigerair Australia has cancelled several flights to Denpasar (Bali) today following a decision by the Indonesian government to impose new administrative requirements for the operation of its flights between Bali and Australia. The list of today's cancellations and available provisions is as follows:

  • 11/1/17- TT1 MEL-DPS
    Reaccomodation on next available Virgin Australia service (subject to availability) or full refund.
  • 11/1/17- TT17 ADL-DPS
    Full refund
  • 11/1/17- TT24 DPS-PER
    Earliest possible reaccomodation on alternate carrier.
  • 11/1/17 TT6 DPS-MEL
    Reaccomodation on next available Virgin Australia service (subject to availability).

Tigerair is contacting passengers affected by today’s cancellations to provide re accommodation options to ensure customers are supported during this disruption. Tigerair Australia sincerely apologises for the inconvenience caused by today’s cancellations.

Customers booked to travel on Tigerair services to and from Bali today are advised not to go to the airport and that the airline will contact them directly with their options.

Tomorrow’s daily return Bali flights are under review and update will be made via the Tigerair website.

In the event of further cancellations, customers will be contacted proactively by Tigerair Australia.

Tigerair is working with the relevant Indonesian authorities to meet the new requirements and is hopeful of having flights up and running again as soon as possible.

All other Tigerair domestic flights are not affected by this decision.

Customers travelling with Tigerair to Bali in the near future are advised to refer to the Tigerair Australia website for regular updates as Tigerair expects a higher than usual volume of calls to the call centre as a consequence.

Alternatively, contact your Flight Centre Travel Expert for further information regarding any Tigerair flights booked to Bali. 

Visit your local Flight Centre store or call 131 600 for more advice and the latest deals on travelling to Bali.
