How to reach Lombok by air

The island has since November 2011 a brand new international airport with new roads to the south and to the north up to Mataram (the main town).

The new airport is located a short distance of Kuta Lombok and the beautiful beaches of the south coast (about 20 minutes). Plan in advance the conditions of your transfer from the airport to avoid having to negotiate the price of the taxi that will take you anywhere you want. If you have booked an hotel, you are better off asking them to plan this for you.

 

International flights to Lombok

You can reach Lombok with direct flight from Singapore, Kuala Lumpur (Malaysia), Jakarta (Indonesia) and now starting September 2013 from Perth (Australia).

More than ten direct flights a day connect Bali to Lombok. You will find daily direct flights to Bali from Singapore, Kuala Lumpur (Malaysia) as well as Perth, Sydney, Melbourne, Brisbane, Adelaide, Darwin (Australia) , Hong Kong, Shanghai, Kaohsiung (China), Tokyo, Osaka and Nagoya (Japan) and even Taipei (Taïwan), Seoul (South Korea), Bangkok (Thailand).

 

Warning: if you fly through Jakarta, be sure to increase the connection time provided to you by your airline to a minimum of two hours and a half. In fact arriving at International terminal you have to change terminal in Jakarta to join the domestic flights terminal (national). For this you have to take a shuttle (rather folkloric) or convince a taxi. If you arrive at the registration desk less than 30 minutes before the announced closing time, there is a good chance that the employee at the counter tells you that your flight is already closed. Then you have to buy another ticket to take the next flight (if not already full). Experienced in March 2013…
