Air New Zealand will relaunch its Auckland-Bali service in 2023 after it ceased due to COVID-19.
It's the latest resumption of a route as the air travel industry recovers from the pandemic, announced shortly before Air Canada resumes its thrice-weekly Vancouver-Auckland service on November 10.
Air NZ's direct flights to the popular Indonesian island will resume on March 29, using a Boeing a 787-9 Dreamliner.
The seasonal service will run through until October 27, leaving Auckland on Wednesday, Friday and Sunday at 11am, before departing Bali at 5:50pm on the same days.
Flight NZ64 Auckland-Bali is scheduled to take nine hours and 20 minutes, while NZ65 Bali-Auckland should take seven hours and 40 minutes.
As with other flights of a similar length, Air NZ has ditched its cheaper airfares that give customers the option of not getting a meal, inflight entertainment and a checked bag. Economy, premium economy and business class fares are available.
"Bali regularly features as one our topmost searched destinations - currently in the top five - and we're expecting interest to be hotter than the Balinese sunshine as Kiwis flock to book a winter getaway," said the airline's chief customer and sales officer Leanne Geraghty.
"It's awesome to be back offering non-stop services and give Kiwis direct access to a tropical paradise that suits any type of travellers."
There are currently no airlines flying direct from Aotearoa to Bali, but New Zealanders have multiple options for getting there with a stopover along the way.
Tickets went on sale on Monday morning for early-bird Kiwis wanting to book a 2023 Bali getaway.
