Etihad Airways and Garuda Indonesia this week will commence new codeshare flights between Jakarta and Perth, the capital of Western Australia.

The daily nonstop flights, to be operated by the Indonesian flag carrier, will begin on June 28.

The new services will add an extra 2,184 seats each week to the Jakarta-Perth route.

James Hogan, Etihad Airways’ President and Chief Executive Officer, said the expanded codeshare with Garuda Indonesia was an exciting development which would deliver benefits to both airlines and their customers worldwide.
