Bali has always been enticing for travellers, with plenty to explore and new things to unveil. Now, Fly Bali brings a new angle to the game, infusing aviation excellence to the island’s tourism scene. After all, pretty views are prettier from above.
Founded by Captain Harriko and partner Marina Trudy, Fly Bali aims to offer discerning travellers a unique and unforgettable way to experience the beauty of Bali. In addition to facilitating aviation operators in Indonesia, Fly Bali focuses on tours, for which the company uses a Robinson R66 Helicopter to take guests roaming the island from above. While relatively small, the aforementioned helicopter excels in agility – ideal to take in all the beautiful scenery the island has to offer.
With the success it has gained, Fly Bali has expanded the brand with new craft and facilities, including the BK-177C and the King Air 350i Executive Private Plane targeting the high-end market, business travellers, as well as medical evacuation needs.
Now offering different tours to cater to the varied preferences of its guests, Fly Bali’s initial tour is A Taste of Bali. The 12-minute ride flies guests across the iconic Garuda Wisnu Kencana (GWK) statue, Uluwatu Temple, Nyangnyang Beach and Melasti Beach. However, we guarantee you will want more.
The next tour packages gradually extend the flight duration, such as the 18-minute Bukit Peninsula package, where you get to see the stunning white sands of Pandawa and Nusa Dua beaches, as well as the GWK statue from up close, the gorgeous cliff-top Uluwatu Temple, Nyangnyang and Melasti beaches. Add more shorelines to the list with The Beaches tour package, where you get to indulge in the pretty sights of the aforementioned beaches, plus more beaches, such as Tanah Lot, Seminyak and Kuta, all in 30 minutes.
Our favourite tour is The Nusa Island package, where the helicopter takes you over Bali’s satellite islands, from Nusa Lembongan to Nusa Ceningan and the largest one, Nusa Penida. Rising to only 50 metres above sea level at their highest points, the islands have a dramatic series of cliffs at every turn, in addition to crystal-clear water crashing against the craggy terrain. Following not far behind in popularity is the Lombok and Gili Islands tour, where you get to witness Mount Rinjani, the second highest volcano in Indonesia.
If you’re not a beach person, Fly Bali also provides a 70-minute Volcano and Temple package, flying above the self-explanatory namesakes, including Mount Batur, Bukit Peninsula, Kintamani Lake, Jatiluwih rice field, and Tanah Lot, among others.
With Fly Bali, the sky’s the limit, as the company also invites guests to tailor their own custom flight tour, charter, or transfer services. With this bespoke service, guests can be picked up in their preferred area and taken to destinations such as hotels or beaches, as well as the hard-to-reach venues.
Fly Bali also encourages guests to fly beyond Bali and Lombok in its lavish King Air 350i Executive Private Plane. You can fly to select cities in Indonesia in the comfort and exclusivity of a private plane and bring back memorable stories to tell.
