Etihad Airways now plans to double the frequency of flights from its home base to the Indonesian capital later this year. From October 1, 2023, business and leisure travelers will get to choose from 14 weekly nonstop flights between Abu Dhabi and Jakarta, providing more flexibility and convenience. The services will be operated using Etihad’s Boeing 787 and 777 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, the airline’s Chief Revenue Officer, in a statement. “Our new flight has been optimized to arrive in Abu Dhabi in the morning, giving travelers 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 flight schedule from October 1, 2023 is as follows:

Flight No. From Dep. Time To Arr. Time Aircraft Frequency
EY474 Abu Dhabi 3:05 a.m. Jakarta 2:35 p.m. B777 Daily
EY475 Jakarta 5:05 p.m. Abu Dhabi 10:05 p.m.
EY472 Abu Dhabi 10:30 a.m. Jakarta 9:40 p.m. B787-9
EY471 Jakarta 1:40 a.m. Abu Dhabi 6:40 a.m.

EY474/EY475 is currently offered as a daily service aboard a Boeing 777-300ER. The addition of a daily late-night departure from Jakarta will make the Emirati capital a more attractive stopover point for Indonesian travelers heading to Europe. Earlier this week, Etihad announced the resumption of regular flights to Düsseldorf, operating on a thrice weekly basis, as well as a new route to Copenhagen, with the latter flown four times a week. Both services will launch on October 1.
