Beginning in July, Middle East-based airlines Emirates and Qatar Airways will operate additional flights to Bali.
"Qatar Airways and Emirates have made sure to add one flight each to Bali in July," said I Gde Pitana, Toursim Ministry's deputy for overseas promotion.
On July 2, Emirates will officially have two daily flights from the previous one flight to Bali from Dubai. Apart from that, the airline will also offer special travel packages for those who are interested in visiting the Island of the Gods.
Qatar Airways will have three daily flights from the previous two flights to Bali from Doha, the capital city of Qatar.
"As part of the agreement, Qatar Airways is asking for Wonderful Indonesia promotional videos as a promotional tool and a list of high-end properties and accommodation since Indonesia is included in the top five prime destinations for tourists from the Middle East," said the ministry's deputy assistant for Europe, the United States, Middle East and Africa tourism promotion, Nia Niscaya.
