We have an newly built airport here which is around 20 km away from our Dive Center. You get daily connections flights from Ambon with Lion Air, Garuda and Sriwijaya.
Direct flights from Jakarta and Bali to Langgur (LUV) are planned for the future
It was planned to start this flights in October 2017 but it didn’t happened. The local government ist working with the aviation companies to start this soonish. We’ll keep you updated!
At the moment arriving from Jakarta takes you around 12h (there’s a plus 2h time zone shift) and 10h from Bali (there’s a plus 1h time zone shift).
On the way back the connection flights are more convenient, starting here 5.50am you’ll landing in Bali 10.30am or Jakarta 11.40am.
