Qantas announces seasonal flights to Osaka as Japan travel booms
Qantas will launch new direct seasonal flights between Sydney and Osaka’s Kansai International Airport in response to the boom in travel between Australia and Japan.
From 14th December 2017 until 24th March 2018, Qantas will operate three flights per week using its upgraded two-class Airbus A330 aircraft.*
The route – which will be the only direct flight between the two cities – adds to the airline’s popular Sydney-Tokyo (Haneda), Brisbane-Tokyo (Narita) and Melbourne-Tokyo (Narita) services providing options for triangular itineraries, and complements Jetstar’s Cairns-Osaka service. Jetstar also flies from Cairns and the Gold Coast to Tokyo (Narita).
Qantas’ Sydney-Osaka service will connect to its large domestic and trans-Tasman networks and Jetstar Japan’s extensive domestic network, providing good onward travel opportunities at both ends of the new route.
