Etihad confirms Jakarta service

28th Feb 2006

Etihad Airways will launch flights between Abu Dhabi and Jakarta on 16 March 2006.
Jakarta is not only the capital of Indonesia, it is also a major southeast Asian trading centre that is home to more than 10 million people, and serves as the gateway to the country’s 240 million citizens.

“Etihad’s decision to fly non-stop to Jakarta is welcome news to both our business and holiday guests and to our cargo customers, because Indonesia is a popular destination and has a thriving business community,” said Ian Ferguson-Brown, Head of Brand Management & Communications, Etihad Airways.

The new service to Jakarta, operated initially with one of the airline’s new Airbus A330-200 aircraft, will add around 200 tonnes of cargo space per month, in each direction.

The new Etihad service to Indonesia will present exciting opportunities for passengers flying between Abu Dhabi and Asia. In addition to Jakarta, travellers can experience some of the world’s most stylish holiday destinations in Indonesia, Bali being one of the most famous.

Etihad will fly to Jakarta four times a week, with flights departing from Abu Dhabi International Airport at 01:45am and arriving in Jakarta at 13:30 pm local time . On the return flight, EY 424 departs from Jakarta at 15:20,pm arriving in Abu Dhabi International Airport at 20:45 pm local time.
