Share The Article

Bali is one of the world’s most in-demand travel destinations right now. Travel data shows that the island will surpass tourism targets for 2023.

As the island becomes more popular, major airlines are upping their game to help tourists travel in style.

Australian airline Qantas has just announced that they will be offering travelers the chance to fly to Bali on their Airbus A330, which features one of the finest business-class suites in the world.

Tourists flying from Sydney to Bali will be able to book their place in the business suite of the Airbus A330 as of October this year. 

What makes the Qantas Airbus A330 flight experience so luxurious? The business suites feature a full, international standard business class seat. Not only does the seat recline, but lie fully flat for a restful and relaxing flight.  

The business suite aisles offer aisle access and more than enough room to kick back, relax and get in the zone for a vacation in Bali.

The QF44 Bali-Sydney flight will still be served by the Boeing 737 until the Australian springtime, with the A330 service launching plenty of time for the Christmas and New Year holidays which is the next peak season in Bali.

Naturally, a luxurious experience comes with a luxury price tag. Business class tickets on the Qantas QF44 Bali-Sydney flight in November start at USD 4,000.

This is a huge increase on the virulent flight offered by Qantas’ main competitor Virgin Australia which had tickets starting at USD 3,000.

Qantas is dedicated to ensuring that every traveler’s flight experience is top-notch. The airline now offers free WiFi for passengers as the flight is over Australia and within the radar of the Sky Muster satellite. 

It is clear that travelers to Bali are seeking more and more luxurious experiences.

Bali now welcomes the world’s largest commercial airline to the runway at I Gusti Ngurah Rai International on a regular basis. The A380 service operated by Emirates flies from Dubai to Denpasar daily.

The business and first-class seats available with Emirates are out of this world, and the flight is proving to be an increasingly popular route for tourists from the United Arab Emirates and other far-flung destinations.

A layover at Dubai Airport is one of the more preferable transit options for travelers heading to Bali from North America and Europe. 

With demand for travel to Bali skyrocketing right now, airlines are working to keep up with the trends. Officials from Bali Airport have confirmed that more flight services will be opening up soon.

Speaking to reporters earlier this month, General Manager of I Gusti Ngurah Rai International Airport, Handy Heryudhitiawan, revealed that the airport is about to offer more choices for travelers. 


He shared, “We are intensively coordinating with relevant stakeholders in order to open new routes to Bali. So, we are optimistic that we can provide services to 20 million passengers in 2023.” 

Qantas may be offering tourists the chance to fly to Bali in ultimate luxury, but travel data shows that the most popular airline to travel to the Island of the Gods with is the airline’s sister brand Jetstar.

Last year the low-cost airline received criticism from Australian holidaymakers in Bali after dozens of flights were canceled and rescheduled at the last minute.


Nevertheless, Heryudhitiawan confirmed that Australian travelers are still happy to book with Jetstar, noting in a recent press statement that “the busiest airline serving international flights in July is Jetstar Airways with 724 aircraft movements serving 156,450 passengers.” 


Bali Airport has committed to ensuring that the traveler experience is upgraded in 2023 to complement the increasingly high standard of travel experiences offered by airlines.

The Director General of Immigration, Silmy Karim, has confirmed that queue times upon arrival at Bali Airport will be reduced to 20 minutes or less, even in peak hours, to ensure that tourists can get out and enjoy the Island of the Gods as quickly as possible.

Is that true? What I know is that immigration has plain clothes "officers" monitoring the arrival hall to stop tourists take photos of the endless queues. If you take a photo they will insist on breaking into your phone/camera to delete any photos and backup. Why do they do this if the waiting time is only 20? As usual in Indonesia it is all about image rather than results.

They will need express service at the airport, limos with tinted windows and then dropped at an quiet luxury villa far from south Bali chocking traffic, noise, pollution, garbage and preman. Otherwise I'm afraid Bali will be a huge letdown for these "luxury" tourists.

Garuda airlines already offers that service but they don't overcharge, overbook lose luggage or cancel their flights so why bother with Qantas,they are an embarrassment to the country and I will never fly with them again
