Direct flights from Perth to Tokyo set to resume

Japanese carrier All Nippon Airways will launch direct Tokyo-Perth flights in September 2019.

The daily Boeing 787 service is the result of collaboration with Tourism Western Australia, Perth Airport and Tourism Australia," Seiichi Takahashi, senior vice-president of ANA, told Travel Mole.

ANA is "'excited to add Perth to our list of world-class destinations," Takahashi said.

State tourism officials expect the service to bring in 76,000 new visitors from Japan to Perth over the next three years, generating $175 million in tourism-related spending.

The service "will deliver a windfall gain for tourism and the broader WA economy," Perth Airport chief executive Kevin Brown said in a statement.

ANA also flies nonstop to Sydney.

Qantas previously operated Tokyo-Perth flights but canned the route back in 2011.
