ANA to double Sydney capacity

Travel to Japan continues to rise

In a boost for travel to Japan, All Nippon Airways (ANA) has announced that it will be doubling frequency between Sydney and Tokyo Haneda from next year. 


ANA currently operates a daily overnight flight from Sydney to Tokyo, but will add a daily daytime service from a date to be announced soon. Tickets are scheduled to go on sale in mid-December.

“A double daily departure from Sydney to Haneda will enable us to provide greater scheduling options for our customers from Australia and this is very good news given the growing popularity of Japan amongst Australian travellers,” ANA Australia/Oceania managing director and Sydney general manager Ryo Sadayuki said. 


“It is extremely exciting to move into the next stage of our growth from Australia and we look forward to welcoming more customers to experience ANA’s 5 star quality service.” 


ANA says the new flights will also generate more options for international connections through Haneda, especially to North America and Europe. 


In 2020, the Japanese carrier will add five new international destinations to its network, with services to Shenzhen, Istanbul, Moscow, Milan and Stockholm. 


In an expansion of its seasonal summer schedule (29 March 2020 – 31 October 2020), ANA will also add new non-stop flights to Qingdao, Delhi, San Jose, San Francisco, Seattle and Washington D.C.
