The new 11-hour route, which is served by a Boeing 787 Dreamliner, will connect the Uzbekistan capital of Tashkent and Jakarta via Kuala Lumpur. According to the airline, the twice-weekly flights will depart on Wednesday and Thursday from Tashkent, as well as Wednesday and Friday from Jakarta.

The aircraft is scheduled to leave Tashkent International Airport on Wednesdays at 6:45 a.m. local time, before arriving in Jakarta at 9:00 p.m. Meanwhile, flights on Thursdays will take off at 9:25 p.m. and arrive at Soekarno-Hatta International Airport at 9:25 a.m.

Jakarta-Tashkent flights on Wednesdays will depart Jakarta at 10:30 p.m. and arrive at 7:00 a.m. local time. Meanwhile, flights on Friday will leave at 10:50 a.m. and arrive in Tashkent at 9:35 p.m.

Uzbekistan’s ambassador to Indonesia, Ulugbek Rozukulov, had expressed hopes that this new route would boost economic growth and tourism between the two countries.
