Qantas will begin flying between Melbourne and Denpasar (Bali) from June 23, 2018
The daily Qantas Boeing 737 flights will run alongside those of low-cost sibling Jetstar, which will also step up to a twice-daily service on the route –although there's no doubt which jet buxiness travellers and serious flyers would prefer to be in.
Qantas flight QF45 will leave Melbourne at 4.50pm, reaching Denpasar at 9.10pm; the QF46 return leg takes wing just one hour later, at 10.10pm, for an arrival into Melbourne at 5.55am the following day.
Qantas already flies between Sydney and Bali.
"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," remarked Qantas International CEO Alison Webster.
