ANA launches Tokyo to Perth service
After three years connecting Tokyo and Sydney, All Nippon Airways will begin non-stop flights between Tokyo and Perth on 1 September.
The new service on the Boeing 787-8 will bring more than 67,000 new visitors from Japan to Perth a year.
Tourism Australia Managing Director, John O’Sullivan said direct aviation access was critical to unlocking Western Australia’s tourism potential.
“This is a hugely significant win for Australian tourism and opens up an important new western gateway for Japanese visitors.
Tourism Australia, Tourism Western Australia and Perth Airport all deserve to be congratulated for their combined efforts in delivering such a successful outcome,” he said.
In the year to October 2018, Australia welcomed 458,700 Japanese visitors, making it the country’s fifth largest inbound market for visitor arrivals. Read the media release.
