With the launch of this new route, the airline will be the first Japanese carrier to fly nonstop from Japan to Perth.
Operated from Tokyo’s Narita International airport, the new daily service will depart Japan’s capital at 11:10 a. m. and arrive in Perth at 8:15 p.m. On the return, the flight will depart the western Australian city at 9:45 p.m. and land back in Tokyo at 8:25 a.m. the next day.
With the launch of this service, ANA looks set to be the first Japanese carrier to fly nonstop and regularly from Japan to Perth. A B787-8 Dreamliner configured with 152 economy seats and 32 business-class seats, will serve the route.
According to ANA, Japan’s location in the northern hemisphere “gives it a different seasonal pattern from Australia, hence boosting tourism appeal for travelers looking to escape winter blues or the summer heat.”
ANA senior vice-president Seiichi Takahashi added: “We are excited to add Perth to our list of world-class destinations and are happy to be collaborating with Tourism Western Australia, Perth Airport, and Tourism Australia.
“The city is celebrated worldwide as a tourist destination and economic hub, and we look forward to making it easier to travel between Tokyo and Perth.”
Following the launch of this service, the total number of international cities served by Japan’s largest airline will reach 45. In February 2019, a new route to Vienna will also commence.
