Hey Guys!

I'm very excited about going to Bali in September and saw some videos of the approach and browsed through some pictures of DPS here on a.net. I noticed that a lot of asian airlines are sending heavy metal to this small island. I also saw some big birds from Garuda Indonesia and read about Lion Air using 744's at DPS. My first question is which function does DPS have for the indonesian airlines ? Is there just enough O&D leisure traffic to use the big ones or has DPS a hub function ?
I'm also curious about service from other places of the world. Are/were there direct flights or tag-ons from Europe or even the US ? I think i read something about a KLM tag-on and a Pan Am stop on it's way to HKG (?).


I'm happy to hear from you

QR has a tag-on from their SIN service, so you can view it as a single carrier 2 stop service from most points in Europe

DPS itself is by far leisure-oriented and the terminal infrastructure is woefully inadequate for a hub operation.

The longest regularly scheduled flights into DPS (and the longest flight from SVO) are Russian:

5429nm SVOº-DPSº Aeroflotˇ 332x2 per month
5404nm DME-DPS Transaero 772x2 per week
(February schedules)

These are the 149th and 151st longest reg. sched. pax flights in the world, respectively.

To my knowledge TK and KL also have tag-on flights from their SIN service. Do LH and AF also fly to DPS? Other than that I think that's it from Europe to DPS but I'm not sure.

Regarding the terminal itself, based on what I've seen from areal photos taken at DPS I find the terminal structure rather unique and exotic with the combination of tropical vegetation, the typical Indonesian-style building structure and loading bridges popping up in between. Very nice looking terminal from what I've seen on the internet.

2 flights per *month* ? So if I'm a Russian tourist I'm trapped there for 2 weeks before I could go home ? Or is it like a scheduled charter with 7-day turnaround each time ?

KL flies AMS-SIN-DPS with 77W.

I flew GRU-AMS-SIN / SIN-AMS-GRU last November and flights from AMS to SIN and return were completely packed (100% LF both ways) with Europeans going on vacation to Bali. Only a few (about 30% of the flight) had SIN as their final destination.

Ha, I can think of worse places to be "trapped!"

Yes, KL has a tag-on from SIN a few times a week. TK flies to CGK but I don't believe they currently serve DPS, nor do LH or AF.

Well no, not exactly. The flights are timed to be 10 or 11 days apart; certainly not a bad length of time to spend away from the Russian winter!   

SU #587 (SVO-DPS) schedules from February into March read:
Feb 9, Feb 19, March 1, March 11, March 22...
with the return on the following day.

I'm going LUX-FRA-SIN-DPS with LG / SQ and the travel agent said he had problems to find seats on SQ25/26. So Europe to Singapore seems to be packed all the time

Interesting airport and seeing heavy metal here is quite a common sight.
I will be in Bali in a few month's time and with the right camera equipment, I hope I will be able to do some spotting as well. There are many "newcomers" that flies to DPS. I use the term newcomers, because it will be new to me as I don't live in Bali. Would love to catch KLM B77W, QR, Transaero and the likes.

Last time I had to transit here, I saw China Airlines and Japan Airlines sending their B744. I recall seeing EVA Air B77W.
On top of that, GA also use DPS as a hub to Australian destination like Sydney, Melbourne, Perth etc. So you can expect a variety of A330's here.

I think i read something about a KLM tag-on and a Pan Am stop on it's way to HKG (?).

A Pan Am 707 crashed approaching DPS from HKG in April 1974, killing all 107 aboard. The flight was operating HKG-DPS-SYD. The flight number (PA812) then continued SYD-HNL-LAX (also a stop at NAN some days) but not sure if it was the same aircraft as the 747 was then being used on some SYD-U.S. flights. At that time I think there were 4 Pan Am 707 flights a week HKG-SYD. One stopped at DPS and the other 3 at Jakarta. (That's based on an April 1973 timetable; it may have changed slightly by April 1974.)

Accident summary:
http://aviation-safety.net/database/record.php?id=19770327-0

More detailed, from the official Indonesia government accident report:
http://www.panamair.org/accidents/climax.htm

That was Pan Am's 5th fatal 707 crash in 9 months, and fortunately the last of that series.

Yeah, there is some nice widebody action at DPS.

If you're also looking for a hotel near the airport, I stayed at the Taman Tirta Ayu Pool & Mansion. Affordable, comfortable rooms with nice amenities, swimming pool, breakfast include and 5 minutes walking from the aiport, and 10 mins walking from the beach with good views of landing/taking off aircrafts.

On the beach you can see the planes approaching/turning in for finals to DPS.
When departing in east direction, a part of the traffic will climb out directly over Sanur when traffic is e.g. Java, KUL/SIN/Europe bound.

Taxi from Sanur to Airport is 100,000 Rupiah flat rate. In calm traffic, I advise to use a meter-taxi, which will do it for about 60,000 Rupiah.
