This week, Jetstar became the first low-cost carrier to launch a service between Brisbane and Tokyo, as their overall expansion continues.
The Australian carrier will service this route five times per week using their Boeing 787 Dreamliner aircraft.
Without further ado, let’s get into it…
Jetstar Becomes First Low-Cost Carrier To Fly Brisbane-Tokyo…
This service between Brisbane and Tokyo is the first of three services to be launched from the Queensland area, with services to Osaka and Seoul on the way.
Commenting on the route launch was Stephanie Tully, the Jetstar Group CEO:
“Experience tells us that our great value fares will stimulate travel demand into Southeast Queensland from Tokyo, Osaka and Seoul.
“This influx of tourists will boost the state’s economy while also giving Queenslanders the chance to take off more and explore these incredibly beautiful and exciting cities.”
Tully mentioned that the new flights from Brisbane to Tokyo, Osaka & Seoul will place an additional 480,000 seats on offer every year.
Adding to her words was Gert-Jan de Graff, the CEO of the airport:
“We know cost of living is a huge issue right now so the injection of thousands of low-cost seats into the market is very welcome at a time when every dollar counts.
“The new flights to Tokyo, Osaka and Seoul are part of a major partnership between Jetstar and Brisbane Airport.”
The scheduling is as follows for all three of the new routes, as per the airline’s website:
|JQ9||Tue, Wed, Thu, Fri, Sun||BNE||NRT||10:40||18:40|
|JQ10||Tue, Wed, Thu, Fri, Sun||NRT||BNE||21:00||06:35 +1|
