Garuda and Etihad Airways, new arrangements commencing June

The Etihad Airways ‘EY’ code is now on Garuda Indonesia flights between Jakarta and Singapore, Jakarta and Kuala Lumpur, Denpasar Bali, Manado, Surabaya, Balikpapan and Makassar and between Abu Dhabi and Amsterdam.

Etihad Airways destinations including; Abu Dhabi, Athens, Bahrain, Brussels International Brussels, Cairo, Dublin, Frankfurt, Duesseldorf, Munich, Geneva , Muscat, Heathrow-London, Manchester, Milan , Domodedovo International Airport-Moscow, Charles de Gaulle Airport-Paris, Fiumicino-Rome, Tehran, New Delhi and others in the Etihad schedules and online booking system should now appear available as (single issue) ticketing from Bali (DPS).

From 21 June 2013 Garuda Indonesia will increase frequency between Jakarta and Abu Dhabi and onwards to Amsterdam from four to six flights weekly. This will provide 13 weekly flights between major Indonesian cities and the United Arab Emirates (UAE).

As part of the same rearrangements Etihad Airways will re-time its flights between Jakarta and Abu Dhabi providing improved connectivity to and from further destinations including Amman, Basra, Erbil, and Kuwait in the Middle East; Athens, Istanbul and Larnaca in southern Europe; Astana, Almaty, Moscow and Minsk in eastern Europe; Nairobi and Johannesburg in Africa; and Sao Paulo, Washington, New York JFK, Chicago and Toronto in the Americas.

Garuda Indonesia will commence services between Jakarta and Perth in June 2013, these will be operated with the Etihad ‘EY’ code and timed to connect with services to and from Abu Dhabi. This should open up a few extra opportunities for travel to and from Western Australia via Jakarta.

It should also be noted that somewhere like Lombok (LOP) can be routed through on a Garuda ticket, ie; LOP-DPS-SYD, LOP-CGK-AMS (single ticket). Hopefully Lombok will turn up on the Etihad schedules as a destination soon (using a Garuda codeshare)

Great news for those of us in Europe, and especially me ;)

Etihad from Dublin already has some great prices to Singapore, can't wait to see their offers for Bali.

Here is something handy...

garuda-indonesia.com/files/…202013.pdf

That links to a schedule table that provides Garuda Indonesia/Etihad Airways Codeshare Flight details for the following destinations:

Abu Dhabi (AUH), London (LHR), Manchester (MAN), Muscat (MCT), Athens (ATH), Moscow (DME), Brussel (BRU), Bahrain (BAH), Frankfurt (FRA), Munich (MUC), Dusseldorf (DUS), Amsterdam (AMS), Milan (MXP).

It also has an FAQ.

If destinations don't turn up on the Garuda system don't forget to look at the Etihad website, that has lots of other options, with booking and ticketing through to DPS (Bali) available.

The FAQ has checked baggage allowances outlined at the bottom of the page.

Thank you Hurcules for sharing this great news. More options and hopefully great fares, too. Flew with Ethiad once and although I still prefer Emirates over them I am happy to hear that a large part of Indonesia will be connected well with the rest of the world. Can't wait for their promos.

I am looking for a reasonably priced flight from either BRU to AUH or from AMS to AUH. (DUS-AUH is not an option this time, unfortunately.......)

Garuda comes up with a reasonable but still expensive flight but in the end I might have to book this flight as Etihad prices (via their website) are absolutely ridiculous when you want to book a flight for April 10 2014!!!

A combination of KLM/Etihad was reasonable till yesterday, wanted to book this flight today, it had gone up 200 euro's overnight??

Anyway, I read this stories about not being able to book a pre reserved seat on a Garuda flight and if there is something I hate, it is having to sit next to a total stranger for 7 hours!

My question: is Garuda overall good? (I guess I will survive the separate seating as long as I get a cheap flight!)

Thanks :-))

Garuda is overall good and reliable from my experience, though I never tried them on a long haul flight.. You are not likely to be seating with a stranger unless the flight is extremely full and you are very late for check in.. The risk is pretty low IMO..

Cheers
