Garuda Indonesia is launching a new direct route between London Heathrow and Jakarta’s Soekarno-Hatta International Airport, Indonesia from 31 October.
The service will run three times a week and will make Garuda Indonesia the only airline offering direct flights there and back. Currently, the outbound route from Heathrow is direct but the return involves a stopover in Singapore.
"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," said Boydike Kussudiarso, general manager UK & Ireland.
