Local travelers will have easier access to 129 global destinations when Emirates increases its non-stop service between Jakarta and Dubai from two to three flights a day.
The premium Gulf carrier will start the increased flight service on March 2, Emirates country manager Mohammed Al Nahari said.
“This flight will allow passengers traveling from Jakarta to select their preferred flight options and will easily connect them with hundreds of transit flights from Dubai,” Al Nahari said in Jakarta on Thursday. “The additional service will also establish Emirates as one of the largest long-haul airlines operating to and from Indonesia.”
With the additional flights, the airline expects to transport more than 2,500 passengers a day and 315 tons of cargo a week between the cities, which would be up almost 50 percent from current levels, he said.
