Emirates is set to boost its capacity in the Indonesian cargo market by nearly 27 per cent to 233 tonnes per week in each direction by increasing its flight frequencies and expanded onward connections between the Southeast Asian country and Europe.

From 1 March Emirates will increase its current Dubai-Jakarta passenger/bellyhold cargo service frequency from 11 flights a week to a double-daily, with the introduction of three additional B777 aircraft.

Key Indonesian exports include textiles, leather products, fruit, fish, medical and computer equipment, chemicals, cosmetics, machine parts and foodstuffs.

Emirates has also announced it is expanding its European network to 25 gateways with plans to launch daily flights to Amsterdam (May 1), Prague (July 1) and Madrid (August 1), “offering more opportunities to Indonesian businesses”.
