Australians will have direct access to buildings as far as the eye can see, shopping for days, a castle, delectable cuisine, a unique ‘Where’s Wally’ type called Kuidaore Taro and so much more through Qantas.

The Flying Kangaroo has announced it’s launching on a new route to Japan – Sydney-Osaka!


The service will be the only one operating on the route and will only be seasonal, running from 14 December 2017 to 24 March 2018, to meet travel demand from Australians heading over to the Land of the Rising Sun for the popular ski season.

Qantas will utilise its Airbus A330 on the route three times weekly, giving flyers access to Business and Economy Class seats.

International Chief Executive, Gareth Evans, said the addition of Osaka to the Qantas network offers another gateway for customers travelling to Japan.

“For Australian travelers, this service will appeal to those looking to explore the historic Kansai region and the surrounding areas.”

“And with a number of exciting events being hosted in Japan in coming years, including the 2019 Rugby World Cup and the 2020 Olympic and Paralympic Games, we are expecting to see travel between the two countries grow well into the future.”
