Qantas has announced it will begin a new daily Melbourne – Denpasar (Bali) service from 23 June 2018 with fares available for sale now.
Operated by a Boeing 737-800 aircraft, the new Qantas route comes as Jetstar increases its Melbourne-Bali flights from 10 per week to twice daily.
The announcement complements Qantas’ year-round daily Sydney – Denpasar service and reflects strong demand from customers who want a full-service experience travelling to one of Australia’s most popular holiday destinations.
Qantas’ Melbourne – Denpasar service will be operated by a two-class Boeing 737 aircraft, with a checked baggage allowance, inflight entertainment and food and drinks all included as part of the fare.
Together with Jetstar, the Qantas Group will now offer customers 84 return services to Bali from across Australia – the largest international airline group to operate on the island.
Alison Webster, CEO Qantas International, said, “As a Group, we’ve built flexibility in to our network to respond to growing demand where we see it. Bali is a very popular holiday destination which caters to different budgets and tastes and with more services between the two countries, we are able to provide customers with greater choice.
“In the last five years, we have seen the number of Australians travelling to Bali more than double, with Qantas and Jetstar carrying 1.6 million customers between them in the last year.”
