Qantas will become the first airline to launch non-stop flights between Melbourne and Tokyo’s Haneda International Airport.
Subject to government and regulatory approval, the year-round flights to Haneda will operate daily from 29 March 2020 with an Airbus A330 aircraft. The new service will replace the airline’s existing service between Melbourne and Tokyo Narita International Airport.
The flights are expected to save travellers more than an hour commuting into the city and complement Qantas’ existing daily flights from Sydney to Haneda.
Qantas is also making improvements for customers flying from Haneda Airport. Eligible customers are now able to access the Priority Lane at the airport’s security checkpoint, as well as Japan Airlines’ Sakura Lounge.
Melbourne to Tokyo Haneda: How to book
The new flights are on sale from today on qantas.com or through travel agents. Customers already booked to travel from Melbourne to Narita will be automatically transferred onto these services or can make alternative arrangements.
Right now, we’re seeing good availability of economy award seats on the new route, however business class award seats do not appear to be available. We’ll provide more information if and when premium cabin award seat availability opens up.
