Turkish Airlines is offering through fares from London Heathrow, London Stansted, Birmingham and Manchester airports, making the airline a viable option for passengers flying between the UK and Jakarta.

Currently, other airlines flying between the UK and Jakarta include Qatar Airways, with connections via Doha, plus Cathay Pacific, with connections via Hong Kong, Emirates, connecting via Dubai, and Etihad, via Abu Dhabi.

The Indonesian capital is Turkish Airlines’ 119th destination.
