Emirates has further extended its premium chauffeur drive service to include arrivals and departures at Jakarta’s Soekarno-Hatta International airport.

First and business class customers now benefit from a complimentary chauffeur drive for both departures and arrivals within an 80km radius of the airport.

Bookings must be made at least 12 hours before scheduled flight times, and eligible passengers wishing to book longer journeys can pay a fee for additional mileage.

Customers arriving into the airport will be greeted at gate 1 and assisted in transferring to Zone 2 for their chauffeur drive pick-up, and similarly those departing the airport will be dropped off at gate 2, enabling them to proceed to the carrier’s check-in counters at C Island.

Emirates uses Mercedes E class vehicles at Jakarta, alongside Mercedes V class vans “subject to availability and passenger count”.

The airline has offered complimentary chauffeur drive for premium passengers for many years, with the service currently available in over 70 cities where Emirates operates.

Note that the service is not available when booking Skywards business or first class Classic Rewards tickets, or when upgrading from economy to business class. And since May 2022 those booking Emirates codeshare flights through Qantas are also not eligible for chauffeur drive.

The carrier has also been steadily expanding its meal pre-ordering service for business class customers, with the initiative now rolled out to 92 routes globally.
