Air New Zealand plans to launch direct flight to Bali later this year.

Air New Zealand has announced plans to launch twice weekly flights from Auckland to Bali’s Denpasar Airport.

The Boeing 767-300 service will operate seasonally between June and October beginning later this year, pending regulatory approval.

The carrier said the non-stop service would provide a better option for travel to a destination already popular with Kiwi tourists.

“Our flight time of eight and a half hours is a significant improvement on the indirect services offered by competitors that can involve long layovers and a total journey time of at least 14 and sometimes more than 24 hours,” CEO Rob Fyfe said in a statement.
