An idyllic location between the Indian and Pacific oceans, intriguing heritage and world-renowned cuisine add up to a recipe for the perfect holiday. Flights to Indonesia connect you with the picture-perfect beaches of Bali, the underwater wonderland of the Coral Triangle, the colonial landmarks of Java, the peaceful temples of Yogyakarta and the unique biodiversity of Sumatra. Leave the grey skies of London far behind as you begin your descent into Jakarta International Airport and catch your first glimpse of the dramatic city skyline and the glittering sea on the horizon.
The summer season of May to September brings the best weather, but also the biggest crowds. The low season winter months are the best time to find cheap tickets to Indonesia. Prices vary according to which part of this huge nation of islands you’re heading for, but as a general rule of thumb you’ll find the best deals by booking well ahead and being as flexible as possible. Bargain flights to popular tourist hotspots like Bali will be harder to source at any time of year, so it’s worth researching a more flexible itinerary with onward connections to an alternative domestic airport to keep your options open.
Direct flights to Jakarta’s Soekarno-Hatta International Airport are operated by national carrier Garuda Indonesia out of London Heathrow, with a flight time of around 14 hours. One-stop alternatives include Singapore Airlines via Singapore or Etihad Airways via Abu Dhabi. Philippine Airlines fly from Heathrow to Bali’s Ngurah Rai International Airport with a stopover in Manila, while Cathay Pacific offer the same destination via Hong Kong. Checking ebookers will also reveal a variety of multi-stop combinations from UK regional airports.
Soekarno-Hatta Airport, around 13 miles north-west of Indonesia’s capital on the island of Java, is the main international gateway to the archipelago. It’s often referred to as Cengkareng Airport after the district in which it is located. Transport from the terminal to the city centre and further afield is provided by shuttle buses, on-site taxis and limousines, while the major car rental companies have desks at the airport for those who prefer their own four wheels. Ngura Rai Airport, also known as Denpasar, is situated in southern Bali. An official taxi rank offering set fares to all the island’s main destinations can be found just outside the arrivals hall.
From the dynamic urban vibe of Jakarta to the awe-inspiring peaks of the Banda Islands, it’s impossible to sum up Indonesia in a few words. The graceful spectacle of the elusive dragons of Komodo National Park, the breathless hush as a gamelan orchestra breaks its silence, the mystical serenity of the royal water temple of Pura Taman Ayun – experiences like these will stay with you long after the suitcases are unpacked and the souvenirs are shared round.
