Garuda Indonesia has confirmed that it will no longer serve the UK from the end of the summer season.
The airline will cease its non-stop Heathrow-Jakarta service on October 28. TTG reported last month that the airline had taken flights GA086 and 087 off sale after this date. Garuda said then that the route was “being restructured”.
In a new statement, the airline said: “Passengers planning to travel with us beyond October 28 will still be able to travel to Jakarta from the UK via Amsterdam, Garuda Indonesia’s European gateway, with our SkyTeam Alliance partners servicing the UK – Amsterdam leg of the journey.
“Our Amsterdam – Jakarta route will continue to operate with six flights a week and these flights will still be bookable via the Garuda Indonesia website.”
Garuda added that existing bookings would be re-accommodated via Amsterdam “or other alternative flights where possible”.
