Fly from Sydney direct to Osaka

Qantas premium service for Christmas and New Year

If you relish award winning service and direct flights at prices that low cost carriers would cry about, it is time to open your early Christmas present.

Qantas has just launched direct services from Sydney to Osaka, in time for the Christmas and New Year peak season. Normally full service flights between Australia and Japan in the peak holiday season would cost $1400 or more on JAL, Qantas or ANA, the three direct service carriers.

Until 4 August, Qantas is offering special launch fares, with all-inclusive Sydney to Osaka return Economy tickets starting from $699 for travel between 14 December-31 December 2017 / 8 January-24 March 2018, and all-inclusive Sydney to Osaka return Business tickets starting from $3,499 for travel between 14 December 2017–24 March 2018.

QF33 flies three times weekly, departing Sydney on Thursday and Saturday at 930 arriving at Osaka Kansai Airport at 1725. On Monday it departs at 1325. From Kansai there are easy connections into downtown Osaka or Kyoto. The QF34 flights from Osaka to Sydney are all in the evening with a morning arrival into Sydney.

Qantas won the Best Airline Australia-Pacific at the 2016, 2014 and 2013 Skytrax World Airline Awards, so it is time to try their winning service.

I knew my future was destined to be with Japan the moment I visited the atmospheric lane ways of Kyoto last century. From the skies above Sapporo to the old charm of Naha's alleyways, I have been enchanted by the beauty and variety on every island. I am humbled to have met many distinguished people in my role as Regional Partner, especially the national living treasures of Japan, such as the doll maker to the Imperial Family. From sushi cooking classes to Ninja training grounds I welcome your ideas on what you like from Please visit us in Kyoto or Osaka and have some green tea or sake with us.

The great news is that Qantas is now flying to Osaka direct all year, not just for the December to March period.
