Garuda goes non-stop on Jakarta-London leg




Garuda Indonesia is going non-stop both ways on its UK flights this winter.

The new non-stop service operating from Jakarta's Soekarno-Hatta International Airport to London Heathrow starts on October 31.

It will be the only non-stop flight to fly from Jakarta to London and will mean cutting out the previous stopover at Singapore Changi Airport.

The announcement also coincides with a new schedule that will see the previous Sunday outbound service rescheduled to Thursday.

Non-stop flights will continue to operate three times per week on Tuesdays, Thursdays and Saturdays.

The airline has also amended flight timings to boost connections from the UK to Australia (Melbourne, Sydney and Perth), the Far East (Hong Kong, Tokyo and Seoul) and China (Beijing, Chengdu, Guangzhou and Shanghai).

Singapore will still remain well connected with up to 10 flights per day from Jakarta.

The non-stop route will continue to utilise the Boeing 777-300ER aircraft in a three-class configuration.
