Etihad Airways to double flights on Abu Dhabi-Jakarta route

National carrier Etihad Airways is ramping up flights between Abu Dhabi and Jakarta from daily to double-daily services.

From October 1, 2023, travellers can avail 14 weekly non-stop flights between Abu Dhabi and the Indonesian capital. The flights will be operated using the carrier’s fleet of Boeing B787 and B777 aircraft.

“Etihad Airways is delighted to boost air connectivity between Abu Dhabi and Indonesia, one of the fastest-growing economies in the world,” said Arik De, chief revenue officer at Etihad Airways.

“Our new flight has been optimised to arrive in Abu Dhabi in the morning, giving travellers from Indonesia a head-start to explore the attractions of our vibrant capital city.

“At the same time, our new service leverages our recently-expanded relationship with Garuda Indonesia to make it even more convenient for UAE residents to visit Jakarta, or one of 20 other destinations throughout Indonesia.”

The carrier said that “the strengthened air links will support the growth of trade and tourism on both sides and reaffirm Etihad’s commitment to supporting inbound tourism.”
