Garuda Indonesia has decided to postpone the launch of its Gatwick to Jakarta route from November until May 2014.
The new service was set to become an alternative route for UK travellers heading to Australia via Jakarta. The route is scheduled to run five times per week when it starts.
Garuda has blamed the delay on the runway at Jakarta’s Soekarno-Hatta airport not currently meeting required standards for the use of Boeing 777-300ER aircraft.
News of the postponement comes a day after reports emerged that British Airways will likely resume flights to Jakarta before the end of this year.
Indonesia's air transport director, Djoko Murjatmodjo, told the Jakarta Post that six new foreign carriers, including BA, would shortly begin services to the country.
