Garuda Indonesia will commence daily flights between its Jakarta hub (CGK) and Doha (DOH) from 4 April 2024.

The new route will be in cooperation with codeshare partner Qatar Airways.

The route will be operated with Garuda’s Boeing B777-300ER aircraft in a dual-class configuration, featuring 26 seats in business class and 367 seats in economy class.

Garuda and Qatar Airways say the launch of services from Jakarta to Doha symbolises the strong bilateral ties between Indonesia and Qatar, aimed at deepening economic cooperation between the two nations.

The new route allows customers of the flag carrier of Indonesia to enjoy access beyond Doha to Qatar Airways’ network of over 170 destinations.

“Qatar Airways welcomes Garuda’s launch of its daily flight from Jakarta to Doha. Indonesia is a country that has great potential and is one of our most important markets within the Qatar Airways global network. With this new partnership, Qatar Airways and Garuda Indonesia provide an unparalleled level of service in response to increasing travel demand, which will further boost tourism between the two countries,” said Qatar Airways Group chief executive officer, Badr Mohammed Al-Meer.

“We are very pleased to be able to add Doha to our extensive global network. There are strong business, tourism, and cultural ties between Indonesia and Qatar, and we believe this new service will further boost those activities between the two countries, while offering easier access for travellers from Qatar to Indonesia, which is now one of the fastest-growing economic centres in the world,” said Garuda president and CEO, Irfan Setiaputra.

Currently, Qatar Airways, offers three daily flights to both Jakarta and Bali, and has recently launched three weekly flights to Medan.
