Air New Zealand is seeking to add twice-weekly flights to Bali to its international service.

The airline today confirmed the new Boeing 767-300 service to the popular Indonesian holiday destination will operate over the peak demand period from June to October.

Its first direct flight between Auckland and Denpasar is set depart on June 20 - subject to government and regulatory approvals.

Chief executive Rob Fyfe said the new flights would make Bali more accessible to New Zealanders.


"Bali has a stable tropical climate and great value food and accommodation, making it a really affordable way for New Zealanders to enjoy a resort style holiday in Asia at a fraction of the price of other destinations."
