Jetstar Airlines is expected to announce this morning a new four times-a-week international service from Perth to Lombok, Indonesia, starting from October.

An announcement at Perth Airport will offer special introductory fares on the route and it is understood the service will operate on Tuesdays, Thursdays, Fridays and Sundays, departing Perth at 10.25am and returning on the same day, leaving Lombok at 6.45pm.

Initially it was thought the airline was to launch the service on July 2 but this has been pushed back to October.

The new destination will be the third international service Jetstar operates directly from Perth, joining Bali and Singapore.

The service balances the cancellation of the airline's daily Perth to Cairns flight, which will cease on October 28 after not living up to expectations.
