ANA increases flights from Sydney and Perth to Japan

All Nippon Airways (ANA) will increase their Sydney to Tokyo (Haneda) route from seven to 10 weekly offerings from January 22.

This is great news for skiers and snowboarders wanting a last minute ski trip to Japan.

The airline will also increase Sydney to Tokyo services to twice daily from March 26.

But wait, there’s more.

ANA will recommence the Perth to Tokyo (Narita) route from late October 2023.

Western Australian snow lovers will have three fights a week to choose from.

Japan is a highly coveted market for Australian skiers and snowboarders due to the ease of access, similar time zone and big powder snowfall.

With the increase of flight offerings hopes are that flight prices will begin to fall as the year progresses.
