Qantas doubles flights to Tokyo in time for 23/24 ski season

It’s good news for those who love skiing and snowboarding in Japan as Qantas doubles their flights.

The airline will increase their east coast to Tokyo flight options from 14 to 28 per week with four daily flights to Japan from November 26.

Sydney will have double daily flights, Melbourne will increase to once daily and Brisbane will also move to daily flights. Skiers travelling from Melbourne and Brisbane will now arrive in Narita Airport.

Over the past six months, Qantas has brought five international aircraft back into its fleet – some from long term storage and some that were on standby as operational spares while the industry stabilised. A new Boeing 787 Dreamliner arrived in May and another two will be delivered next month.

The latest Qantas A380 stored in the desert was reactivated in January and an additional A380 will return to service at the end of the year following maintenance and modifications to the cabin.

I flew Jetstar Business to ski in Japan and I don't regret it
