Emirates to fly Jakarta-Dubai twice daily

United Arab Emirates airline Emirates will increase its Jakarta-Dubai flights to twice daily starting next month, the airline country manager said Tuesday.

"Our flights will support the Indonesian government's plan of increasing inbound arrivals from the Middle East countries by up to 100,000 travelers in 2010," Emirates' country manager Mohammad Al Nahari said.

The additional services will increase the airline’s seat capacity by more than 2,600 per week, he said

The airline has appointed VFS Global, a specialist partner for diplomatic missions, to assist Emirates in handling Dubai visas.

"The partnership with VHS Global will offer a huge benefit to our passengers who require a visa to enter Dubai," Al Nahari said.
