egtmedia59The new service to Tokyo’s Narita Airport will begin on December 16 and be operated by an upgraded, two-class A330-300 with 297 seats – an aircraft widely seen as best in class for the business market. The number of visitors to Australia from Japan grew by 17 per cent in 2015/16 financial year. Outbound travel by Australians to Japan is also growing rapidly the carrier says. Qantas and Jetstar will both operate flights from Melbourne to Tokyo during the December 2016-February 2017 holiday peak.  Jetstar will then cease flights on the direct route after February 25, 2017. Existing customers booked on Qantas’ Sydney-Tokyo (Haneda) and Brisbane-Tokyo (Narita) services wanting to change their flight to the new Melbourne-Tokyo (Narita) direct service can contact Qantas customer care.
