Qantas will begin a new daily Melbourne to Denpasar (Bali) route from 23 June 2018 utilising a Boeing 737-800 aircraft.
The new Qantas route comes as Jetstar increases its Melbourne to Bali flights from ten per week to twice daily.
Qantas said the Melbourne service complement its year round daily Sydney to Denpasar service and reflects strong demand from customers.
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 into the island.
Qantas International chief executive officer, Alison Webster 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 one point six million customers between them in the last year.”
