Australia-Bali flights move to year-round service

Qantas has revealed plans to move its popular Sydney–Denpasar service to a year-round schedule from March 2017. 

This is the second consecutive year the national carrier has run this particular service - and the decision to increase its frequency is a reflection of strong demand. 

Travellers on the route have been asking for a full-service experience for their trip en route to Bali, which is one of the most popular outbound destinations for Australian holidaymakers. 

A two-class Boeing 737 aircraft that currently operates the route will continue to do so, with the service including checked baggage allowance, inflight entertainment and food and drinks as part of the fare. 

Flights run four days a week and this complements the 60 return services per week offered by Jetstar, the low-cost carrier subsidiary of Qantas. 

Gareth Evans, chief executive officer of Qantas International, said additional capacity was added to provide customers with more choice. 

"The combination of Qantas and Jetstar means we can give our customers the maximum range of options for their visit to Bali," he commented, adding that Bali is an important destination that caters to different budgets and tastes. 

"We've had a fantastic response to Qantas' seasonal service, especially from our frequent flyers, so we felt the time was right to go year-round."

Qantas has been attempting to adopt a more agile and flexible approach to its Asian network over the past two years - a strategy that includes responding to growing demand where relevant. 

The second year of seasonal daily Bali services operated by Qantas began on December 14th December and will run until the March 25th 2017. The new year-round services will commence from March 26th.
