Qantas launches Melbourne-Jakarta flights

Victoria is getting another international route thanks to Qantas, which is starting a direct service from Melbourne to Jakarta.

From April 16, 2023, Qantas will fly between Melbourne and Jakarta three times a week using its spacious Airbus A330 planes.

These aircraft have excellent lie-flat seats in business class, arranged in a 1-2-1 layout, while economy class is 2-4-2.

This new route adds to the existing Sydney-Jakarta service, boosting the number of seats to and from Jakarta by over 6,600 per month.

This will help boost business and tourism connections between Australia and Indonesia.

It’s also going to be a hit with people travelling to and from other big Indonesian cities like Surabaya and Medan.

This Melbourne-Jakarta route is the third new international route Qantas has added out of Melbourne since borders opened back up. They’ve also started flying to Delhi and Dallas Fort Worth to keep up with the demand for travel.

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

“Victoria is an incredibly important part of our network and we’re seeing strong demand for travel to and from Melbourne,” Mr David said.

“We expect these flights to be popular with Victoria’s large Indonesian expat community wanting to visit family and friends back home as well as offering a new gateway for travellers looking to explore the region.

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

There is also good availability of reward seats in economy and business class, so snap them up!
