The country′s flag carrier Garuda Indonesia plans to serve direct flight between Jakarta and London starting Nov. 15.



Currently Garuda flies to London from Sydney with transit in Jakarta , Erik Meijer, Garuda′s sales and marketing director said.

Garuda will use the 440-seat Boeing 777-300ER aircraft to serve the Jakarta-London route four times in a week, Meijer said here last weekend.

Garuda already had two units of Boeing 777-300ER early this month, he said, adding the airline plans to increase the number to 10 units until 2015.
