The easiest way to search for these flights is to head over to Google Flights or Orbitz, where you can enter your desired city pairs and dates to get a calendar view of the different prices for each date.

The CGK airport is located right outside of Jakarta’s sprawling metropolis, which is renowned for its crazy traffic jams. If you want a truly luxurious (and expedited) experience after your discounted flight, check out this police escort service that will take you from CGK to downtown in a jiffy.

Otherwise, Jakarta’s CGK airport is the hub for Garuda Indonesia and features flights from Southeast Asian Low-Cost Carriers Lion Air, Air Asia and Indonesian LCC Batik Air. Jakarta can be a cheap jumping off point if you’re looking to head to other exciting destinations like Bali, Borneo, Papua New Guinea, Malaysia, Singapore, Thailand and others.
