    TRAVEL & CRUISE LOGISTICS


    International flights generally arrive at one of the following airports:  Bali-Denpasar (DPS) ... Jakarta (CGK)  ... Manado (MDC)  ,,, but for these itineraries, Bali tends to be the most practical.  If you are on a Bali to Komodo cruise, you will leave from Benoa Harbor in Bali.  All other itineraries require a domestic flight to either Labuan Bajo or Maumere on Flores. We will be pleased to help you book your domestic flights through our Bali agent.

    The boat's scheduled departure time varies depending on current domestic airline schedules, which can change, so departure details are not listed here. We'll inform you at time of booking and will keep you posted on any possible changes.
