Jetstar to fly direct from Sydney to Japan’s food capital
Wednesday, 15 November 2023: Jetstar is launching direct flights between Sydney and Osaka (Kansai), offering more than 100 thousand low fares seats every year between the two popular destinations.
From 1 April 2024*, the low-cost carrier will take-off three times a week using its fleet of Boeing 787 Dreamliners – the first time in 15 years that Jetstar has flown the direct route.
The announcement follows news Jetstar will also start four weekly return flights between Brisbane and Osaka from 2 February 2024.
Jetstar Group CEO, Stephanie Tully, said the arrival of more Airbus A321neo LRs has meant the low-cost carrier has been able to redeploy its Boeing 787s and further grow its international network.
“This is the eighth international service we’ve launched or announced in the past year and our third new service between Australia and Japan.”
“Japan has always been a top holiday spot for our customers, so we know they’ll be excited to have easy access to this incredible Japanese city.
“Known as the food capital of Japan, Osaka’s also famous for its nightlife, architecture and history, and is fast becoming a must-see destination for Aussie travelers.
“And in return, the launch of this new service means Jetstar will be the only airline to fly from Osaka to Sydney, Brisbane and Cairns – the three most popular cities for Japanese tourists.”
