With international flights to Bali more accessible than ever, it’s easy to see why Bali is becoming a must-see destination for European tourists.

For decades, Bali has been a favorite destination for European travelers, many of whom visit the island as part of backpacking adventures and honeymoons.

Gufran said Australian tourist numbers are expected to increase by 30% this year, with European travel trends trailing behind.

Gufron said, “Poly continues to move even into the Australian market. Apart from Australia, tourists from Europe are also likely to visit Bali. Like Germany, tourist arrivals from that country will increase by 14.23 percent in 2024.

Although there is a high number of flights available to Bali, Khufran noted that Bali needs more direct flights from major European cities if these travel trends are to be supported.

Ghufran said, “BASACOMM recommends that additional direct flights are required. In fact, there are direct flights from Qatar, Turkey, Singapore and other countries, but they are still very few.


Most tourists flying to Bali from Western and Central Europe want to relax before heading back to the Island of the Gods once again.

The cheapest and most frequent transfer for European tourists is Dubai, with flights to Bali on a daily basis.

Others fly to Kuala Lumpur, Bangkok and Singapore and catch a short flight to Denpasar.

These transfers can add extra travel time and directly increase the cost of travel.
