How to get to Flores & Komodo Island. Flights to Maumere, Labuan Bajo, Ende
Flores Island is located in South-East Asia and part of country Indonesia, the largest archipelago on the Earth consisting of more than 17,000 islands between Asia and Australia. The main airports on Flores are in Labuan Bajo/Komodo (LBJ), Maumere (MOF) and Ende (ENE). In addition, there is a small airport in Bajawa (BJW) which is serviced daily by Wings air. Additional airports served by charter airlines are in Ruteng and Larantuka.
There are daily direct flights with ➚Lion/Wings Air from Denpasar Bali to Labuan Bajo and Maumere and flights via Labuan Bajo (Flores) or Kupang (Timor) or Sumba Islands to Ende on Flores Island. There are also daily flights to Labuan Bajo with ➚Garuda Indonesia. In addition, there are regular flights with ➚Nam Air/Sriwijaya Air to Maumere and Labuan Bajo.
From Jakarta, Yogyakarta, Surabaya, Semarang on Java Island and from Lombok, there is good flight connection to Flores. From the capital of Indonesia Jakarta there are daily direct flights to Labuan Bajo (Komodo) with Garuda Indonesia, Batik Air (Lion Air) and Citylink Air. Another airline that offers flights to Flores is ➚TransNusa.
The airline tickets are often more expensive in high season (July/August/September) and during Ramadan. Last minute is difficult to estimate, you may have luck (especially in the low season) but you can also unnecessarily pay to much or all flights are fully booked especially to Labuan Bajo (Komodo) in high season.
Good to know !!!Since 14 June 2018 all Indonesian airlines are no longer on the so called "black list" of the EU. There is a well-developed network of domestic flight connections in Indonesia.
The corona pandemic brought also in Indonesia the passenger air traffic between the islands to a complete standstill at times. Since summer 2020 there have been irregular flight connections (also to Flores) but the flight connections shown on the airlines websites are unfortunately still not reliable or are a snapshot that can change at very short notice.

Don't underestimate the distances on Flores Island!
The road conditions in Flores are - apart from the bigger towns like Maumere, Ende, Bajawa and Ruteng - very modest. Only a mostly paved street connects the East and the West of the island and it partly winds through the mountainous regions. Landslides and broken,damaged bridges are not uncommon during and after the time of the monsoons. A trip with a privatly chartered car (that makes you independent from the schedules of the busses) from Maumere to Labuan Bajo in the West takes at least two days
The local public transport consists of little busses, minibusses and Bemos. The busses are often incredibly jam-packed, especially on the market-days. Minibusses are often quite comfortable.
There are no car rental agencies, but you can rent car with driver . We gladly arrange a car with driver for you or organize your individual several-day Flores Island trip or daytrips.
