Jakarta is the capital and the largest city in Indonesia. Although known to be the most populous city, Jakarta is filled with an exciting nightlife culture and endless shopping options. It is here you will find Soekarno-Hatta International Airport - the operating hub for Lion Air, Wings Air and Garuda. For foreign contract pilots living in Indonesia, Jakarta is the ideal base from which to explore wider Indonesia and its spectacular geographical and cultural diversity.
For pilots on contract with Wings Air and Lion Air, a Bali base may be requested (subject to approval by the airline). Beautiful Bali is an Indonesian island known for its breathtaking scenery, white sand beaches, surf and lush coral reefs. The essence of the Balinese culture and food will leave you feeling at peace and serenity in no time. The island experiences warm, tropical weather all year round with the only seasons being dry season and rainy season. This will leave you with plenty of time to experience what this beautiful island has to offer.
