Etihad Airways to Increase Abu Dhabi - Jakarta Flights

Etihad Airways is to increase the frequency of its Jakarta Abu Dhabi flights from seven per week to double daily.

The addition of the new flight on 27 October 2013 will double the number of Boeing 777-300ER services operated by Etihad Airways between Jakarta and Abu Dhabi and will bring to 20 the number of weekly flights offered in partnership with Garuda Indonesia.

The extra daily service will add 5,768 extra seats per week to the Jakarta Abu Dhabi route.

The addition of a second daily flight puts Etihad Airways in a strong position in the Indonesian market because travellers will have a greater choice of departure times and will enjoy more frequent connections in Abu Dhabi to key destinations across our global network, said Etihad Airways President and Chief Executive Officer James Hogan. The extra capacity also presents opportunities to capitalise on Indonesias rapidly growing aviation market and to leverage the growing trade between Indonesia and the United Arab Emirates ... Last year, total bilateral trade between Indonesia and the UAE was valued at $3.3 billion, an increase of 32.32 per cent on 2011 so we see significant opportunities to boost our share of the business travel market and to grow our successful freight division, Etihad Cargo.

Mr Hogan noted that the addition of a second daily flight was consistent with Etihad Airways expansion in Indonesia.

We entered the Indonesian market in March 2006 with a modest four flights a week between Jakarta and Abu Dhabi and since then, we have more than tripled our frequency and have developed a strong partnership with Indonesias flag carrier.

Our partnership with Garuda Indonesia adds six extra flights per week to the Abu DhabiJakarta sector and enables us to offer daily flights between Jakarta and Perth, Australia and connections to five Indonesian cities.

Etihad Airways flights between Jakarta and Abu Dhabi are operated by a two-class Boeing 777-300ER aircraft, with 28 seats in Pearl Business Class and 384 seats in Coral Economy Class.
