Garuda Indonesia has confirmed that it plans to increase the number of flights to Sydney from Jakarta due to strong demand.

Spice News reports that the airline, formed in 1949, is set to add four extra flights per week – bringing the total to seven per week.

It is expected that the popularity of the route has lead to the new services, especially as passenger capacity as ten per cent higher in November and December compared to the Sydney to Bali route.

Garuda Indonesia’s senior Australia general manager, Bagus Y Siregar, explained that the increase reflects growing tourism between Indonesia and Australia.

He added: “We foresee that… with daily services from Sydney to Jakarta we will provide our customers with endless opportunity for travel and encourage the continued growth of Jakarta not only as popular Indonesian destination but as Asia’s newest gateway to the globe.”
