Qatar Airways: Another way to get to Bali

qatar airwaysThere is yet another way for you to get a flight to Bali (as long as you are not an Aussie). Qatar Airways has opened up a new route from the Middle East to Denpasar, on March 24th.

Why would anyone fly with a Middle Eastern airline? It may seem strange at first, but in fact the Middle East has some great airlines. My favourite airline is Gulf Air, out of the UAE, which I’ve flown with a dozen or so times. Airlines from this part of the world tend to be affordable, have good routes, new planes, good pilots, excellent in flight service, with staff often hailing from all across their network of countries. Plus I figure I’m less likely to get hijacked on an Arab airline. Seriously, these countries have the money to put together a good service and they do.

Qatar Airlines are growing and already serves parts of Europe, Africa, the Middle East, Asia and 3 cities in the US (Houston, NYC and Washington DC). The airline already flies from Qatar to Jakarta and has added a direct flight to Denpasar . In my experience alcohol is served on Middle Eastern airlines, so no worries about being stuck on a dry flight home.

    We’ve been travelling to Bali for many years and never had any interest in go anywhere else as Bali had everything that we were after…until now!

    Lack of flights from Brisbane did not deter us as we were fine with having to travel to Sydney but flights are booked up so far in advance now that we have given up on Bali in June and will travel to Fiji instead. I know they don’t compare as I visited Fiji many years ago, but I feeel now that I have no choice as it’s virtually impossible to get to where I want to go.

    I’m sorry but terrorists may have started the downward spiral on tourism in Bali but the Indo gov and Garuda are doing well to keep it going.

    I love Bali and would love to one day return…maybe i’ll buy a boat 🙁
