The new partnership allows customers of the world’s largest international airline, based in Dubai, and Indonesia’s national carrier, to enjoy seamless connectivity on routes across the Americas, Middle East, Africa and Europe.

Emirates will place its code on Garuda Indonesia operated flights on ten routes via two of its hubs, both Jakarta and Denpasar.

Adnan Kazim, chief commercial officer, Emirates said: “We are delighted to establish a partnership with Garuda Indonesia to provide seamless connections to customers of both airlines. As the travel industry recovers, this is the perfect time to commence our partnership as travellers begin planning leisure and business trips once again and seek the convenience of seamless travel. The codeshare agreement will enable us to expand our reach and allow our customers to use our services and fly to additional domestic points in Indonesia.”

We are also pleased to offer Garuda Indonesia’s customers access to popular destinations beyond Dubai that are visited by Indonesian travellers, along with other benefits. We look forward to developing the relationship further, and introducing more added-value benefits in the future that will be felt by customers of both airlines.”

Irfan Setiaputra, President & CEO, Garuda Indonesia said: “Providing connectivity to more destinations with a seamless flight experience is our main focus in delivering added value to our customers. As one of our most strategic codeshare partners, we believe the partnership with Emirates would expand our customers’ access to popular destinations in Europe and add more convenience value to our shared services. The start of this partnership is in line with Garuda’s commitment to contribute to the national economic recovery and connect Indonesia to the world. With more countries easing travel restrictions and reopening borders, we look forward to serving both Emirates customers flying to Indonesia, and Garuda customers to travel to more destinations around the globe.”
