Virgin Australia is spreading its wings a little more throughout Asia with the launch of new codeshare flights to Indonesia via SilkAir, the regional arm of Virgin partner Singapore Airlines.
The five new destinations are Bandung (airport code BDO), Balikpapan (BPN), Lombok (LOP), Palembang (PLM) and Solo (SOC), although of course are no direct flights from Australia – you'll first need to make your way to Singapore on SQ.
The SilkAir flights are operated by either Airbus A319 or Airbus A320 aircraft with business class and economy class, and you can earn Velocity frequent flyer points and status credits on the SilkAir flights or redeem your Velocity points for your ticket to Indonesia.
"Indonesia is the largest economy in Southeast Asia and one of Australia’s most important trading partners, with over eleven billion dollars’ worth of trade between the two countries in 2012" explains Virgin Australia Chief Commercial Officer Judith Crompton.
"We now have Virgin Australia marketing code on ten destinations across Indonesia that can be accessed on one ticket from all Virgin Australia serviced airports across Australia and New Zealand."
