According to CAA statistics, 55,264 PAX flew between LHR and CGK last year, that was a 58% increase on 2017. Between 2011 and 2018 British nationals tourist visiting Indonesia grew by 95%, phenomenal growth rate and the great thing is there's also enough demand for business travel, Indonesia's economy is booming and it's GDP and export stats speak for themselves. A route always works better if there's a good balance o biz and leisure travelers. There's clearly a demand there, whether VS can make it work better than GA, who knows.
