Batik Air has launched its daily service from Jakarta to Perth.

The non-stop service commenced last Friday aboard the A320neo PK-BDF, and will be operated by A320 aircraft, arriving in Perth at 12:20am every night and returning to Jakarta at 1:50am.

Kate Holsgrove, acting CEO of Perth Airport, said Batik is a valued airline partner for Perth.

“This Batik Air service to Jakarta will fly daily and deliver more than 120,000 new seats into the Perth market which delivers another huge boost for Western Australia’s business, student, and tourism sectors,” she said.

“With a population of 10.5 million, there is a massive opportunity to entice not only tourists, but students from the Indonesian capital.


“As Western Australia’s 12th largest trading partner, the new non-stop service to the Indonesian capital city only presents more opportunity for Western Australia businesses.”

Perth is already connected to Jakarta by Citilink and Indonesia AirAsia, with all three airlines also offering services from Perth to Denpasar.

Batik Air’s sister carrier, Batik Air Malaysia, last month launched a service from Kuala Lumpur to Auckland, connecting through Perth, using the 737 MAX 8.
