Qantas will turn its seasonal Sydney-Denpasar service to year-round operation from this March.
This is the second year of seasonal operations for the service. Qantas said its
decision to make the service permanent reflected “strong, growing demand from travellers wanting a full-service experience for their trip to one of Australia’s most popular holiday destinations”.
Qantas’ Bali service will continue to be operated by a two-class B737-800, with a checked baggage allowance, inflight entertainment and food and drinks all included as part of the fare, with flights running four days a week.
Qantas International chief executive Gareth Evans said the additional capacity was all about increasing choice.
“The combination of Qantas and Jetstar means we can give our customers the maximum range of options for their visit to Bali.
“That’s important for a destination which 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.
“For the past couple of years, we’ve been taking a more agile, flexible approach to our Asian network – responding to growing demand where we see it – and this is the latest example of that strategy in action.”
Qantas’ second year of seasonal daily Bali services began on 14 December 2016 and runs until the 25 March 2017, with year-round services then continuing four days per week from 26 March 2017.
