JAL to increase Narita - Jakarta to double daily.

Japan Airlines (JL/JAL) will add a second daily round-trip on the Tokyo/Narita (NRT/RJAA) - Jakarta/Soukarno-Hatta (CGK/WIII) route from June 13th. The new flight will operate at evening hours from Narita and morning hours from Jakarta. JAL's refurbished 199-seat (24 business, 175 economy) Boeing 767-300ERs, branded 'Sky Suite 767', will serve the route (JAL adding more Sky Suite destinations.).

Archrival All Nippon Airways (NH/ANA) also added a second daily Tokyo - Jakarta flight on March 30th (ANA's Summer 2014 international expansion.), but from more convenient Tokyo/Haneda (HND/RJTT), while their first still originates in Narita. Garuda Indonesia (GA/GIA), which started code-sharing with ANA on March 30th, operates a daily B777-300ER service from the Indonesian capital to Narita, while Haneda will be launched on June 16th with Airbus A330-300s.
