Qantas will be in Osaka all year, just not every day
Osaka has been a seasonal destination for Qantas since July this year, now Sydney to Osaka is to become a year round route, but only three times a week. It will be the only direct flight between the two cities. Qantas flies to Tokyo from Sydney, Brisbane, and Melbourne, and Jetstar already flies to Osaka and Tokyo from Cairns.
Qantas International CEO Gareth Evans:
“When we announced the direct seasonal service between Sydney and Osaka in July, we knew it would be popular with our customers, including those travelling from New Zealand, who wanted another gateway into Japan.
“We are really pleased to be able to extend the service year-round to support the strong growth in travel between the two countries.”
The year round services between Sydney and Osaka starts on 14 December 2017 – pending the usual regulatory approval.
