With Qatar Airways and Garuda Indonesia from Zagreb to West Papua

You would first fly to Doha, from where a Qatar Dreamliner would fly you to Jakarta, Indonesia. The last segment from Jakarta to Sorong is operated by Garuda Indonesia (SkyTeam) onboard a Boeing 737.


Some countries are currently advising their citizens, not to travel to the Indonesian provinces of Papua and West Papua (Papua Barat) due to the violent clashes between separatists and the police. Apparently, the internet has been completely shut down in both provinces.
