Garuda Indonesia will begin operating direct services from Jakarta to London’s Heathrow Airport starting March 31, making passengers’ travel time between the two cities shorter by eliminating its previous stopover at Amsterdam Schiphol Airport and shifting its operations from London Gatwick. The new service is set to depart from Jakarta at 07:45 a.m. and land in London at 06:55 p.m., while return flights will takeoff from London Heathrow at 9:10 p.m. and arrive in Jakarta at 05:00 p.m. the following day. Although the carrier will be flying directly from London to Jakarta (making it the first and only non-stop flight to connect the UK and Indonesia), flights from Jakarta will include a stopover in Singapore. The route will operate five times a week using the carrier’s Boeing 777-300 ER aircraft, which comes with a three-class configuration. The move to launch direct flights between the two cities comes as Garuda Indonesia aims to strengthen its connectivity to European destinations and meet its commitment as a national flag carrier, connecting Indonesia to the world.
