All Nippon Airways (ANA), Japan’s largest and 5-star airline for six consecutive years, will begin offering services between Tokyo and Perth, Australia in September 2019. The flight will be based out of Narita International Airport and offer direct services to Perth, Australia’s fourth largest city. This makes ANA the first Japanese carrier to fly to Perth from Japan on a regular basis.

Japan has been an attractive destination for people in Australia and will attract even more visitors with the upcoming Rugby World Cup in Japan next year. Furthermore, its location in the northern hemisphere gives it a different seasonal pattern from Australia, boosting tourism appeal for travelers looking to escape winter blues or the summer heat. The flight also will appeal to business travelers as economic ties are on the rise between Japan and Australia. ANA expects business travel will be on the uptick in years to come.

The announcement of this new route comes as ANA is preparing to extend services to Vienna, Austria in February 2019. As ANA continues seeking to better serve consumers worldwide, it will do everything possible to expand its network to so far un-served destinations and make traveling as safe, pleasant and convenient as possible.

After the demise of Sabena - in 2001, I created a website called www.luchtzak.be, originally a meeting place for plane spotters and aviation freaks. Since 2017, the website changed into a professional news site. Next to aviation, I love to travel, wine and dine and enjoy my time off(-line) with my girlfriend, friends and family. My favourite football squad is KV Mechelen, I am an Ironman 70.3 finisher and my ambition is to complete a full Ironman.
