Good news for ski lovers with an announcement today that Qantas will launch new direct, seasonal flights between Sydney and Osaka's Kansai International Airport over the winter months.
The Australian national carrier says its decision is in response to the growth in travel between Australia and Japan.
From December 14, 2017, until March 24, 2018, Qantas will offer flights three times per week and will operate upgraded two-class A330 aircraft.
Qantas will be the only airline to offer a direct flight from Australia to Osaka, the route adding to Sydney-Tokyo (Haneda), Brisbane-Tokyo (Narita) and Melbourne-Tokyo (Narita) services.
Osaka and the broader Kansai region is a significant tourist attraction and home to world-class ski resorts.
To celebrate the launch, Qantas is offering special fares with return economy tickets starting from $699 and return business class tickets starting from $3,499. The sale ends on August 4.
