Some of the increased options that passengers now have for international flights to Europe.
This is thanks to an increase in Middle-Eastern airlines flying from Indonesia to their hub in the Persian Gulf – often direct and non-stop – connecting to many other cities in Europe.
These airlines not only offer cheaper flights and better connection times, they offer faster/more direct flight paths to many larger European cities (e.g. Berlin, Milan, Birmingham, Vienna) that aren’t hub airports themselves or don’t receive many inter-continental flights. For example, people in Birmingham don’t have to fly via London Heathrow or another European hub before continuing to Asia.
This post outlines some of these options in more detail. For the short version, see here.
