Bali is without a doubt one of the most popular tourist destinations for Australians. In fact, according to Traveller, Bali is actually the most popular with million’s of Australian tourists visiting the Indonesian Island yearly. As you can see, those numbers are significant so it’s no surprise to see an airline increase their services and frequencies to the tourist hub.
Well, if you’re a fan of Bali and happen live in Melbourne – you’ll soon be able to fly directly to Bali daily! earlier today, Qantas announced that they will be introducing a brand new daily services which will begin from June 23rd, 2018.
The new route will be operated by Qantas’ 737 fleet. The aircraft is fitted out in a 2-class configuration featuring 12 Business Class seats, each with 37-inches of pitch and 22-inches of width.
And for passengers seated in the Economy cabin, each seat has a pitch of 30-inches and a width of 17.2-inches. The cabin is in a 3-3 configuration and Qantas have wireless on demand entertainment which can be accessed on any smart device.
“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 one point six million customers between them in the last year.
Here’s the schedule for the flights:
QF45 departs Melbourne at 4:50pm and arrives into Bali at 9:10pm
QF46 departs Bali at 10:10pm and arrives into Melbourne at 5:55am the next morning.
Overall I think this will be a pretty popular flight and it also serves as an alternate if you’re not wanting to fly Qantas’ low-cost brother Jetstar.
