Tourist hotspot Bali is reopening its doors to foreign visitors for the first time since March 2020, but there are no international flights scheduled for the island just yet.

“Our hope is that those flights will resume soon,” said Gede Eka Sandi Asmadi, spokesman for Bali’s airport operator PT Angkasa Pura I. The airport is waiving landing fees for all airlines through year-end to encourage them to resume international routes to Bali.
