The Great Indonesian Tour

Hey guys! I would like to share what I did in the last three days. I got bored of flying in Europe so I did a tour around my country’s neighbor, Indonesia! The challenge was to fly every Indonesian airline in IF using real life routes and it was super fun. I would like to share some photos, and the flight numbers for all of you to replicate and enjoy! Hope you like my amateur photos as I’m not a really good photographer lol.

All flights were done in the Expert Server. Flight numbers were researched from Flightradar24 and FlightAware. (JT847 and JT942 are currently inactive but used to fly pre-pandemic)

I would like to thank the pilots who joined me (even though they don’t know me) throughout this trip as it made me less lonely! I do remember that some of them are from GAVA, so hello to all GAVA pilots! Sorry I’m unable to thank you one by one but if you flew in Indonesia in the period of 0600Z to 1400Z last July 4-6, I would like to say hi! And for the Indonesians out there, thank you for having one of the best sceneries and sights, sincerely from the Philippines!

(P.S. No photos for QZ125 as nothing interesting happened lol. Also, Please forgive me for my bad grammar 😅)

Each leg consists of 1h to 1h30m of flight time so it could take up to 10hrs! I strongly suggest all of you to fly to this cool country to see the numerous volcanoes and islands!

This reminds me of my tour of Mexico :)
I’ve also done a tour of Indonesia (A loooongg time ago) but at the time I didn’t consider it a tour.
Other than that, those are some epic screenshots!
