ANA Launches Perth-Tokyo FlightsAll Nippon Airways (ANA) will launch daily, non-stop flights from Perth to Tokyo Narita from 1 September 2019. The Japanese Star Alliance member will use Boeing 787-8s on the new Perth-Tokyo route with Economy, Premium Economy and Business Class available.

ANA will be the only airline to offer direct flights between Perth and Japan since Qantas abandoned its Perth-Narita flights back in 2011.

The overnight flight NH882 from Perth to Tokyo will take 9 hours and 35 minutes, departing the West Australian capital at 9.45pm for an 8.25am touchdown at Narita Airport. The return flight, NH881, will leave Tokyo at 11.10am, arriving in Perth at 8.20pm.

As well as a more convenient way to reach Japan, the new flight also offers Perth travellers new one-stop connections to Europe and North America with All Nippon Airways.

ANA is offering launch sale fares in all three classes of travel. At around $1,600 return for Premium Economy, this is a fairly good option as ANA also offers lounge access to Premium Economy passengers.

Just booked for a staff member to fly to Japan in October. Premium economy ticket $1,637 return which is excellent value. Great flight times plus lounge access at Narita.

There are already daily ANA flights from Sydney to Tokyo.

Use points to book a seat on ANA’s Perth-Tokyo flight

There is also plenty of award availability on the new Perth-Tokyo flights. Most dates have two award seats in Economy and Business Class available. As ANA is a Star Alliance airline, you should be able to book a seat using miles with any other Star Alliance airline. But pricing and availability does vary by frequent flyer program.

Using the Singapore Airlines KrisFlyer program, it would cost 166,000 KrisFlyer miles and around $519 in taxes and fuel surcharges for a return Business Class ticket from Perth to Tokyo. But United only charges 100,000 Mileage Plus miles and $152 in taxes for the same Business Class flights (as United does not pass on the fuel surcharges).

If you have Amex points that can be converted to Virgin Atlantic Flying Club, you could book for 90,000 Flying Club miles + $519 taxes/charges, round-trip. We could not find any award availability on the new Avianca LifeMiles website.

You can use the Aeroplan website to find ANA and Star Alliance award availability.
