Arriving In Palu
Palu Airport, known in full as Mutiara SIS Al-Jufrie Airport, is situated less than 5 km from Palu and handles a range of domestic flights across Indonesia. If you are looking to travel from the UAE to Palu you will not be able to make the trip nonstop as no airlines offer direct flights currently. However, it is possible to complete the journey with only a single transfer which makes things a lot more convenient.
Palu Airport recently opened up a brand-new passenger terminal in April 2017 so you can expect your stay at the airport to be pleasant and enjoyable with the modern facilities on offer. However, choices are rather limited at the airport so don’t expect many options when it comes to dining and shopping. When you have touched down at the airport, getting into the city is easy by taxi and is also affordable given the short distance involved.
