Qantas flights take off from Melbourne to Jakarta

Fly in Style from Melbourne to Sydney with Qantas' Special Flight

With the national carrier’s today-launched new flights direct to Jakarta, Victorian passengers now have access to another overseas route from Melbourne.

The year-round service will complement Qantas’ currently scheduled flights from Sydney to Jakarta by operating three days per week on an Airbus A330. Together, these flights give passengers more flight options and nearly 300,000 annual seats between Australia and Jakarta than any other airline.

Following the introduction of flights to Delhi and Dallas-Fort Worth, the new service marks the fourth foreign route to be added to Qantas’ network from Melbourne since borders were once again opened. Last month, Qantas started flying flights from Melbourne to Tokyo again, using Haneda Airport for the first time. This allowed passengers to travel to and from downtown Tokyo in just under two hours less time than they would have had to use Narita Airport, where the trip had been operating prior to the pandemic.

The route is anticipated to be well-traveled by passengers heading to and from other significant Indonesian cities including Surabaya and Medan.

The Qantas Group operates up to 106 return flights per week from Australia to Indonesia, including Qantas and Jetstar flights from Melbourne to Bali.

Qantas recently announced a multi-million dollar investment in new menus, larger meals and premium produce across all cabins in its regional, domestic and international network. The new menu changes started to roll out last month and feature seasonal ingredients, including plant-based options, coinciding with Autumn. Grilled snapper with red chilli sambal, stir fried kai lan and steamed jasmine rice, and a beef goulash with capsicum, buttered green beans, roasted potatoes and black pepper sour cream are some of the menu items which feature on Qantas’ Melbourne-Jakarta flights.
