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)Edited: 2:11 pm, March 24, 2013
