Gulf carrier Emirates is set to expand its presence in Indonesia this year by connecting its hub in Dubai with Indonesia's most popular tourist destination of Bali.
Emirates executive vice president and chief commercial officer Thierry Antinori said the Dubai-Bali daily flight service would be launched on June 3.
"Bali is a significantly important market for Emirates. There is high interest in Bali from across our network, specifically in the leisure segment," Antinori told The Jakarta Post on Tuesday, adding that Dubai would connect passengers from Bali to more than 80 destinations across Europe, the Middle East, Africa and America.
The non-stop daily flight service will be operated by a Boeing B777-3000 Extended Range (ER) with a two-class configuration.
