The carrier will operate twice daily direct flights between the cities from October
Etihad Airways has announced that it will fly direct from the UAE capital Abu Dhabi to the Indonesian capital of Jakarta twice daily from 1 October 2023.
Increasing from one flight per day, the route will be serviced by Etihad's fleet of Boeing B787 and B777 aircraft.
The strengthened air links will support the growth of trade and tourism on both sides and reaffirm Etihad's commitment to supporting inbound tourism.
Commenting on the news, Etihad Airways chief revenue officer Arik De said: "Etihad Airways is delighted to boost air connectivity between Abu Dhabi and Indonesia, one of the fastest-growing economies in the world.
"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."
Home to more than 10 million people and the largest city in Southeast Asia, Jakarta is a hub of Indonesia’s rich history, culture and nature, while Abu Dhabi offers visitors modern museums and theme parks, from Louvre Abu Dhabi to Ferrari World Abu Dhabi, as well as beautiful beaches and traditional desert experiences.
