A new bilateral UK/Indonesia Air Services Agreement was negotiated by the Department for Transport with its Indonesian counterparts as recently as 2012. The Agreement improves previous arrangements by allowing airlines from either country to operate up to fourteen services per week in each direction between points in the UK and points in Indonesia. However, whilst it is the Department’s role and aim to negotiate as many opportunities as possible with the UK’s bilateral partners, it is ultimately for the airlines to decide on the services they operate based on their commercial judgement.
