Garuda Indonesia will from 31 October offer non-stop services between Heathrow and Jakarta in both directions. Currently only the 14-hour southbound leg does not require a Singapore stopover.
Whilst it takes nearly one hour longer northbound the new flight will not require to stop at an intermediate point.
Boydike Kussudiarso, general manager UK & Ireland says: “Operating non-stop flights from Jakarta to London has been a significant goal of ours for many years, even more so since the new Terminal 3 at Jakarta’s Soekarno-Hatta International Airport – which opened just last year – became our home this May.
“We wanted to introduce the non-stop service to reflect Jakarta’s growing profile as a hub for international and domestic travel, allowing UK travellers and our SkyTeam Frequent Travellers better connections to more destinations.
The announcement also coincides with a new schedule that will see the previous Sunday outbound service rescheduled to Thursday. Direct flights will continue to operate three times per week on Tuesdays, Thursdays and Saturdays, enabling better connections for UK passengers travelling onwards from Jakarta to domestic Indonesian destinations including Surabaya, Medan, Jogyakarta, Makassar, Labuan Bajo and Garuda Indonesia’s secondary hub Denpasar, Bali.
The route continues to utilise the Boeing 777-300ER aircraft in a three-class configuration.
