New Flight Route to Manado (diving spot) by TransNusa

Indonesia is not just Bali. It's more than 17,000 islands. Many of them still preserve untouched nature and culture from Europeans. For tourists arriving in Bali, TransNusa Airlines offers to expand their horizons by launching five new domestic flights to the eastern part of Indonesia.

These destinations include Manado, North Sulawesi, Ambon, Maluku, Sorong, West Papua, and Timika, Papua. Directly from Bali, this airline's new flight can take you to Manado. It's a popular spot for diving and snorkeling, especially known for the Bunaken National Park. It's located near the center of the Coral Triangle, which encompasses 76% of the world's coral species. That's why you can encounter the most unusual fish, mollusks, reptiles, and marine mammals there.

Hiking enthusiasts will also find plenty to do. You can climb Mount Lokon (1580 m) or Mount Klabat (1995 m). From Mount Tumpa, you'll have a beautiful view of the ocean and neighboring islands. Another national park accessible from Manado is Tangkoko. There you can observe wild animals such as hornbills, black crested macaques, and cuscuses.
It's the only city in Indonesia where you can enjoy both stunning underwater landscapes and breathtaking mountain views.

This isn't the wildest place. There's a good international airport, and the access roads are well-developed. Over the past decades, there has been a significant increase in tourist traffic to the city. Additionally, various international conferences are held there.
Based on what's available on ticket-selling websites, direct flights from Denpasar to Manado start at 1,800,000 rupiahs one way. TransNusa Airlines offers the most advantageous option, saving both money and time. Their overnight flight lasts only 2 hours and 25 minutes, while Lion Air's daytime flight takes 4 hours and 5 minutes.
"With the introduction of these new routes, we aim to make traveling across Indonesia more accessible to passengers. This provides an opportunity for more people to explore the natural and cultural beauty of Eastern Indonesia," said Datuk Bernard Francis, CEO of TransNusa Group.
Through Manado, tourists will have the opportunity to explore other destinations by continuing their journey using the airline's new routes. If the Denpasar-Manado flight operates three times a week, flights from Manado to Sorong and Manado to Ambon will be available daily.
Indonesia's Minister of Tourism and Creative Economy, Sandiaga Uno, stated that these new routes are intended not only to increase accessibility for tourists but also to strengthen inter-regional connections in the eastern part of the country.
