Dubai carrier Emirates has activated its codeshare partnership with Indonesia’s Batik Air, expanding connectivity for its customers with access to 25 Indonesian points with a single ticket and baggage policy.
As part of the agreement, Emirates changed its code on eight routes operated by Batik Air via Jakarta to Balikpapan (BPN), Denpasar (DPS), Medan (KNO), Manado (MDC), Padang (PDG), Surakarta (SOC), Surabaya ( SUB) and Makassar (UPG).
In addition, Emirates customers have easy access to 17 other Indonesian domestic points via Jakarta and Denpasar via an interline arrangement to cities such as Praya (LOP), Semarang (SRG), Sorong (SOQ) and more.
Tickets can be booked on the Emirates website, through online travel agencies or travel agents.
Emirates has been serving Indonesia for over 30 years, since the first flight to Jakarta in 1992.
Earlier this year, Emirates launched its codeshare agreement with Indonesian national carrier Garuda, giving its customers access to eight domestic points in Indonesia beyond Jakarta and Bali.
