Flying Kangaroo launches new route to Indonesia

Latest News|Published 2 February 2023

Victoria is set to benefit from another international route out of Melbourne with Qantas launching a new service direct to Jakarta. 

From 16 April 2023, the national carrier will operate three weekly return flights between Melbourne and the Indonesian capital with its widebody Airbus A330 aircraft.

The new service adds to Qantas’ flight from Sydney and will increase seats to and from Jakarta by more than 6,600 per month, supporting the growing trade and tourism links between Australia and Indonesia. The route is also expected to be popular with travellers connecting to and from other major Indonesian cities such as Surabaya and Medan. 

Melbourne-Jakarta is the third new international route out of Melbourne to be added to the Qantas network since borders reopened, following the launch of flights to Delhi and Dallas Fort Worth as the airline responds to strong demand for travel.

Qantas Domestic and International CEO Andrew David said the airline was excited to be expanding its international network from Melbourne.  

To celebrate the new route, Qantas is offering a special fare starting from $899 return, available until 7 February 2023, unless sold out prior.
