Garuda Indonesia starts with non-stop flights from London Heathrow to Bali from January 22. This flight, operated thrice weekly, is part of a modification in the route between Jakarta and London Heathrow: it becomes a triangular flight Jakarta – Heathrow – Denpasar – Jakarta and thus becomes the very first non-stop flight between Western Europe and the most popular Indonesian holiday island.
The slightly more than 15 hours flight departs in London at 21:55 and arrives the next day at 21:15 in Denpasar (Bali). The return flight from Bali to Heathrow does have a stopover in Jakarta.
On board the Boeing 777-300ER there is room for 26 Business Class passengers and 367 Economy Class passengers.
Garuda Indonesia also flies 6 times per week from Amsterdam Schiphol Jakarta, where travellers can take a connecting flight to Bali. KLM (codeshared with Garuda Indonesia) flies daily from Amsterdam to Denpasar via Singapore. In the near future, Dutch travellers will be able to fly KLM to Heathrow and connect with the new non-stop flight to Bali.
