All Nippon Airways (ANA) is set to launch a direct flight between Tokyo and Perth, Australia from 1 September 2019.

The daily service will depart Narita International airport at 1110, landing in Perth at 2015 local time. The return flight leaves at 2145 and arrives at 0825 local time.

Flights will be operated by a B787-9 with 32 Business Class seats and 152 in Economy.

ANA says it hopes the flights will attract Australians looking to visit Japan for the Rugby World Cup, as well as boost business travel between the two countries.

Seiichi Takahashi, senior vice president of ANA, commented: “We are excited to add Perth to our list of world-class destinations and are happy to be collaborating with Tourism Western Australia, Perth airport and Tourism Australia. The city is celebrated worldwide as a tourist destination and economic hub, and we look forward to making it easier to travel between Tokyo and Perth.”
