AirAsia launch sale: Non-stop flights from Perth to Lombok from $99 each way
Your new winter escape destination is sorted.
AirAsia has declared our new Indonesian obsession just in time for the winter holidays and it's not too far away from our current favourite. Lombok is all set to become the new Bali, and we've got the flights to get you there on the cheap.
Starting from 9 June 2019, AirAsia will have four new weekly flights between Perth and Lombok.
These flights will operate on Mondays, Wednesday, Fridays and Sundays with the flights taking off from Lombok (QZ 470) at 2:45pm and arriving at 6:40pm local time in Perth.
Return flights (QZ 471) depart at 7:30pm from Perth and arrive at 11:25pm in Lombok.
Special launch-day fares are on sale to celebrate the new route and you can snap them up from just $99 each way. Travel dates are between 9 June and 26 October – just in time for Lombok's dry season.
If you want to take advantage of these cheap flights and explore somewhere new, just head over to Skyscanner to pick out your best dates.
Don't take too long, though. These launch fares are only available until 24 March or until seats sell out.
How good are these Lombok fares?
- Price: Great. The average price travellers pay to get to Lombok is $384 return with a "good" price according to Skyscanner being $300. This is definitely one to jump on.
- Airline: Great. AirAsia is a budget airline, but it's considered the best one in the world so you can't go wrong here.
- Travel time: Great. All flights are direct and these are the only direct flights currently available.
- Weather: Great. Similar to Bali's dry season, Lombok is best from May to September if you want to avoid the worst of the rain. These travel dates fall during the best time to visit the island.
