Qatar Airways resumed services to Bali on Wednesday.

The services are available seven times a week, with its QR962 flight scheduled to depart from Doha's Hamad International Airport (HIA) at 12:45 a.m. and arrive at Bali's Ngurah Rai International Airport in Denpasar at 3:45 p.m. Meanwhile its QR961 flight will take off from Bali at 10 p.m. and land in Doha at 2:35 a.m. the day after.

According to a statement, the services utilize a Boeing 787-8 that can accommodate 22 and 232 business and economy class passengers, respectively.

The state-owned flag carrier of Qatar has also revealed plans to increase flights to Jakarta from Doha with 11-weekly services starting July 7.

“Qatar Airways has shown to be a responsible and reliable airline during this COVID-19 pandemic and we are delighted to resume services to Bali, one of the most visited tourist destinations, along with an increased flight frequency to Jakarta. We would very much like to support the recovery of tourism in Indonesia and look forward to the return of international leisure travel," said Qatar Airways VP for Southeast Asia Jared Lee in the statement, adding that his side believed vacationers would steadily return as entry restrictions around the world began to ease.

Amid the pandemic, the airline has introduced personal protective equipment (PPE) for its cabin crew, which includes gloves, face masks, safety glasses and protective gowns fitted over their uniforms. 

It provides complimentary protective kits for all passengers, which include a face mask, gloves and hand sanitizer gel. It also distributes disposable face shields for adults and children at the check-in counters at Hamad International Airport or at the boarding gates in other destinations. (kes)
