Wings Air launches direct flights from Denpasar to Malang, reducing travel time to Mt Bromo significantly.
For many years, Mt Bromo has been the most visited of Indonesia’s 129 active volcanoes (more than the famous/infamous Anak Krakatau or Mt Kelimutu). This is probably due to its relatively easy access, wide choice of accommodation nearby and proximity to Indonesia’s tourist hub of Bali.
In the past, a trip from Bali to the picture postcard moonscape of Mt Bromo usually involved a short flight from Denpasar/Bali to Surabaya, then a bus/train ride to Malang or Probolinggo, then another bus/jeep ride up the mountain in the early morning to the lookout point. Or the more intrepid could take a bus from Bali all the way to Probolinggo (including a short ferry ride). However, both ways could take several hours or longer, due to delays, traffic, narrow/hilly roads, etc.

As you can see, Malang is much closer to Mt Bromo than Surabaya
However, Wings Air (partner/subsidiary of Lion Air) has launched a new route that reduces the hassle and travel time significantly: Denpasar to Malang.
Using their brand new ATR72-500 aircraft (see above), Wings Air flies this route daily at the following times:
*Local time in Malang is one hour behind Denpasar/Bali
One-way fares start at $US55.
Alternately, if you are flying from Europe to Jakarta, there are also multiple daily flights from Jakarta to Malang.
