On Monday (November 8, 2021), Emirates announced the signing of a Memorandum of Understanding (MoU) with Garuda Indonesia to establish a new codeshare partnership. The new codeshare will facilitate seamless connectivity on 18 routes between Indonesia and the Middle East, Africa and Europe, as well as eight domestic destinations in Indonesia, which will be available to customers on Emirates’ tickets. Emirates and Garuda Indonesia will also explore opportunities to offer reciprocal frequent flyer benefits, including the ability to earn and redeem points on both airlines, upgrades and other exclusive benefits. Subject to regulatory approvals, the codeshare agreement is expected to come into effect from January 2022.


In Monday’s announcement, Emirates’ Chief Commercial Officer, Adnan Kazim, said,


“We are pleased to forge a codeshare partnership with Garuda Indonesia to provide our customers with access to additional destinations in Indonesia and which also allows them to enjoy seamless and convenient connectivity to eight domestic destinations to and from Dubai and to our global network through Jakarta, and three destinations through Denpasar.


“Indonesia is an important market for Emirates and our partnership with Garuda Indonesia is testament to Emirates’ commitment to continuously strengthen our network, and complement our offering. Through the expanded, combined network of both airlines, we are able to offer our customers a more seamless experience through check-in, bag check and boarding on every leg of their journey, all with a single ticket. We look forward to working with Garuda Indonesia and nurturing the relationship to bring more valuable benefits to our customers and their travel experience.”


Also commenting on the new codeshare partnership, Garuda Indonesia’s President & CEO, Irfan Setiaputra, said,

“We are delighted to announce our partnership with Emirates that gives their inbound passengers seamless access to top travel destinations in Indonesia connected by Garuda’s domestic network. Outbound Garuda passengers will also benefit from this partnership as it gives them access to a wider range of destinations served by Emirates. This partnership is timely as countries are expected to start to reopen their borders for international flights and ease their travel restrictions. It will also help open up many opportunities for Indonesia’s trade and tourism activities.”


Under the codeshare, Emirates’ guests will be able to connect to/from Denpasar (DPS), Surabaya (SUB), Makassar (UPG), Balikpapan (BPN), Manado (MDC), Medan (MES), Padang (PDG) and Solo (SOC) airports on flights operated by Garuda Indonesia from Jakarta (CGK) to Dubai and beyond with a single ticket. For customer convenience, routes connecting Denpasar (DPS) directly with Surabaya (SUB) and Makassar (UPG) will also be available. Likewise, Garuda Indonesia will add their marketing code to flights on eight routes operated by Emirates, including flights between Dubai and Jakarta (CGK), Denpasar (DPS), Bahrain (BAH), Moscow (DME), Johannesburg (JNB), Cairo (CAI), London (LHR) and Manchester (MAN).
