How to Book Flights to Indonesia for Diving Adventures


Planning your diving trip to Indonesia? Here's what you need to know about booking flights.

International Flights to Indonesia

Indonesia is accessible through several international airports, with Bali (DPS) and Jakarta (CGK) being the most popular entry points. Major airlines like Garuda Indonesia, Singapore Airlines, and Qatar Airways offer regular flights to these hubs. It's advisable to book international flights 3-6 months in advance for the best rates and availability.

Domestic Flights within Indonesia

For reaching specific dive destinations like Komodo, Raja Ampat, and Alor, you'll need domestic flights. Airlines such as Garuda Indonesia, Lion Air, and Wings Air provide regular services to key ports:

Bali (DPS) to Labuan Bajo (LBJ) Bali (DPS) to Maumere (MOF) Jakarta (CGK) to Sorong (SOQ)

Tips for Booking Domestic Flights

Book 2-3 months in advance: Indonesian airlines frequently update their schedules and prices. Luggage Allowance: Typically 15 kg for checked luggage. Excess baggage fees are approximately USD 1.5 per kg. Transfers: We offer free transfers from the airport to the liveaboard embarkation points.

Recommended Routes

Depending on your liveaboard itinerary, here are some recommended routes:

Komodo Cruises: Fly from Bali to Labuan Bajo or Bima. Raja Ampat Cruises: Fly from Jakarta or Bali to Sorong via Makassar. Alor & Flores Cruises: Fly from Bali to Maumere.
