Cheap Flights To Jakarta, Indonesia

 If you’re looking to book cheap flights from the USA to Jakarta, Indonesia, look no further than Globehunters, where we have a number of fantastic fares on various popular routes from across the country.

Situated on the north-west coast of the island of Java, Jakarta is truly a city full of surprises, and while it might not be the most obvious vacation destination, those who do choose to visit will find a city with many different facets, and somewhere a bit different from your standard beach break.

Whether it’s the exciting nightlife, the scents and tastes of Chinatown or the museums of Kota (the old city), there’s plenty on offer in this diverse capital and with Javanese, Indian, Chinese and Dutch cultures all calling Jakarta home through the years, the city has become a real melting pot of people.

Jakarta is also a popular destination for backpackers who are heading off to other parts of Indonesia, who will likely stay close to Jalan Jaksa, the backpacker street.

In the Taman Fatahillah square you’ll find the city’s best museums, including the History Museum, Fine Arts Museum and Puppet Museum, and in Merdeka Square, you’ll see the major political buildings such as the Presidential palace and Supreme Court, as well as the Monas column, a national monument.

For shopping, you should head to the south, where you’ll find the upscale shopping malls, and for some adventure, you can catch a ferry out the Thousand Islands, where you can try water sports such as diving and windsurfing.

Flight times

Flights from the USA to Jakarta roughly take between 21 and 25 hours depending on the airport you’re departing from and how long your layover is.

• Visa-on-Arrival: If visiting family or traveling for purposes other than tourism, you can request a Visa-on-Arrival, which will cost $35 and last up to 30 days, although it can be extended.
• Visa in advance: If you’re planning to stay for an extended period of time, you should look into obtaining a full visa before your journey.

Also remember that you need a passport which is valid for at least six months beyond your date of arrival and with two blank pages.
