Luggage fees dropped for surfers flying Melbourne-Bali route

written by Staff reporter | March 2, 2020

A partnership between Avalon Airport and Citilink Indonesia means Melburnians can travel to Bali (Denpasar) with a checked-in surfboard for free.

The deal, which runs until the end of March, includes 10 kilograms luggage, seven kilograms hand luggage and a standard meal.

Currently, one-way tickets start from just $168.

Avalon CEO Justin Giddings said the move was part of a broader push to prioritise easy and affordable travel for Victorians.

“This is why we are so proud to have partnered with Citilink Indonesia to not only offer competitive low fares, but also great deals such as free transport of surfboards and cheaper parking,” he said.

“There are so many great, but unknown benefits that come with flying via Avalon Airport. It means cheaper parking, less waiting time, no queues, on-time departures, free trolleys, no hassles and high quality, friendly service.”

Melbourne Avalon Airport launched its new low-cost direct flight to Denpasar with Citilink earlier this year.


A subsidiary of Garuda, Citilink flies from Avalon Airport multiple times per week.

    has Citilink cancelled flights from Avalon to Bali, I just received a message from them saying my flights are cancelled. Calls to them and emails all bounce back/are disconnected. I’m worried I’ve lost my money.
