Citilink lands in Perth with new Jakarta service

31 July, 2023
Citilink’s inaugural Jakarta service touched down in Perth just after midnight.

Perth Airport Acting Chief Executive Officer Kate Holsgrove said the Citilink Perth–Jakarta services bring more competition and more choice for travellers.

“This follows Citilink’s return to Perth with their daily Perth-Denpasar service earlier this month.


“It’s great that Citilink is returning, especially given that these services will bring almost 190,000 additional seats to the market, which is fantastic news for those travelling for leisure, business or education.


“Indonesia is our nearest neighbour and one of the most popular tourism destinations for Western Australians.


“And as a significant trading partner with a population of 273 million, these new services to Indonesia only brings further business and trade opportunities,” said Ms Holsgrove.

Citilink Indonesia CEO Dewa Rai has stated, "These new International routes are quite promising considering that tourists from Australia are one of the highest number of tourists visiting Indonesia in 2022."


“With the recently received global award from Skytrax, Citilink is highly optimistic that this award gives us an advantage of added value in attracting the public's interest. This can be applied for Indonesians and foreign tourists alike, to visit Jakarta, Denpasar and Perth respectively.


"The opening of these new international routes is expected to improve bilateral relations between the two countries so that they can increase the potential for cooperation in various sectors such as culture, economy, politics, social and so many more," concluded Dewa.


The Citilink daily Perth – Bali service arrives into Perth at 4.50am and departs at 7.30am.


And the new Citilink Jakarta – Perth operates on a Tuesday, Thursday and Saturday on an A320, arriving into Perth at 12.10am. While the Perth – Jakarta service will operate on Wednesday, Friday and Sunday, departing from Perth at 1.30am.
