Qantas to double its daily services to Tokyo and adds more international routes

Qantas to double its daily services to Tokyo and adds more international routes

Qantas has announced that it would increase from two to four daily flights to Tokyo.

Qantas is expanding its global network by adding additional flights, aeroplanes, and locations. Along with this, travel is quite popular both domestically and internationally.

Starting in October 2023, Qantas will level up its international network, adding almost one million extra seats over the course of a year compared to its existing timetable.

Customers will have easier access to well-known locations around Asia, the United States, and the Pacific thanks to this boost in capacity.

The additional capacity will be achieved by the restoration to service of more Qantas aircraft, the addition of new aircraft to the fleet, and a deal with oneworld partner Finnair to operate two Airbus A330 aircraft on two Qantas routes.

By March 2024, Qantas’ international capacity—which is now at around 84% of pre-COVID level capacity—will have increased to meet pre-COVID levels thanks to the network improvement.

Flying to Tokyo will become simpler as a result of this network expansion. According to Qantas, starting on November 26, there will be an option of four daily flights to Japan, doubling the number of weekly flights from Australia to Tokyo from 14 to 28.

Melbourne to Tokyo will go from four times per week to daily, Brisbane to Tokyo will go from three times per week to daily, and Sydney will go from daily to twice daily. Additionally, services from Melbourne and Brisbane will relocate to Narita Airport, a major hub airport located 60 kilometres east of the heart of Tokyo.

Additionally, Qantas is prepared to restart San Francisco flights the following week and to introduce its first service between Sydney and New York through Auckland the following month. Seasonal services to Rome and flights between Melbourne and Hong Kong will return in June, according to Qantas, as the European summer begins to heat up.

Qantas CEO Alan Joyce commented on the developments, saying: “This boost to our network will add hundreds of thousands of seats in time for the busy Australian summer holiday period. The rebound in demand for international travel since borders reopened has been extremely strong.”

We can release some of the planes we had in reserve since Qantas has been the most punctual major domestic airline for the past eight months in a row. That shows more of the aviation supply chain getting back to normal, which is a major testament to the dedication of our team members across the Group.

Mr. Joyce also made a suggestion that the expanded network would aid in containing fare costs.

There is still an imbalance between supply and demand for international travel, despite efforts by airlines throughout the world to increase capacity to meet demand, according to Mr. Joyce.

However, as we increase our own flights, we have more seats for our passengers and more opportunities for Qantas crew thanks to more of our aircraft returning to service, new 787s joining our fleet, and our partnership with Finnair.

“We know that our customers are looking for great value, and this additional capacity will also put downward pressure on fares.”

In addition to Tokyo, Rome, San Francisco, and Hong Kong, Qantas will enhance capacity on a number of other destinations beginning on October 29, 2023. You can view the complete list here, but to give you an idea, daily A330 flights will resume on the Sydney to Shanghai route for the first time in more than three years, and the number of weekly flights on the Sydney to New York (via Auckland) route will increase from three to four.

In addition, Qantas will increase its flights to Hong Kong, Singapore, Delhi, Wellington, Honiara, Christchurch, and Queenstown. Tickets for the expanded flights will begin to go on sale today at and through travel brokers.
