Garuda Flies to Flores Airline announces new direct flights to Labuan Bajo
Indonesia’s flagship airline, Garuda Indonesia, has announced it will offer direct flights from Jakarta to Labuan Bajo in Flores, East Nusa Tenggara.
Flores and the surrounding islands – including Komodo – have been growing steadily in popularity for several years amongst both international and domestic tourists.
Previously, the only barrier to more substantial growth in the region was the lack of infrastructure and the logistical challenges faced by visitors wishing to make the trip; the usual route to Labuan Bajo requires a stopover in Bali.
This new direct route from Garuda offers travellers a more convenient and timesaving journey, connecting Indonesia’s capital with one of its most popular and remote tourism locations.
The new flights depart Jakarta at 10:05am and arrive in Labuan Bajo at 13:35 every day of the week, except Saturdays. A 96-seater Bombardier CRJ1000 NextGen aircraft serves the route. All seats are economy class.
Thanks to Garuda’s new flights, there’s never been a better time to check out Flores and East Nusa Tenggara.
