How to fly from Australia to Tokyo for $699 return


Virgin Australia this morning unveiled a new year-round, daily Cairns-Tokyo (Haneda) service, which will add over 2,000 seats per week to Japan from June 28, 2023.

And to celebrate, Virgin dropped a Hello Tokyo sale with tickets on sale from $699 return, until midnight next Tuesday, or until sold out.

Linking directly to Tokyo’s Haneda Airport, the route will add over 30,000 additional inbound visitors into Cairns every year, delivering a major boost for the local tourism industry.

Virgin plans to operate the route using new Boeing 737-8 aircraft, which it says will reduce emissions by up to 15% per flight.

Virgin Australia has also announced it will strengthen its partnership with All Nippon Airways (ANA), with expanded codeshare services and reciprocal loyalty benefits to be implemented throughout 2023.

The new route was launched in partnership with the Queensland Government and Cairns Airport through the Queensland Government’s Attracting Aviation Investment Fund.

Virgin Australia Group Chief Executive Officer Jayne Hrdlicka said: “I’m thrilled to announce the launch of our brand-new daily, year-round Cairns-Haneda service with VA77 taking off on June 28 next year. 

"We’re excited to offer our guests access directly into and out of Tokyo’s Haneda Airport, on new fuel-efficient aircraft."
