There are direct flights to Ambon (Maluku) from Jakarta, Surabaya and Makassar as well as from small airports in Maluku and West Papua. With four airlines offering flights from Jakarta to Ambon each day, it is usually more time and cost effective to travel through Jakarta. Time constrained divers can make use of the overnight flight with Lion Air or Batavia, or for those with a more relaxed schedule, there is the opportunity to rest at one of a choice of convenient airport hotels before an early start to Ambon.
Jakarta airport has a free shuttle bus between the international and domestic terminals until 11 pm, taking up to 30 minutes. After that a taxi can take you between the terminals. Indonesian domestic flights are often delayed, so please plan enough time for your travel and connections.
