Japan Airlines will launch a new direct flight from Melbourne, Australia to Tokyo Narita Airport from September 2, 2017.
JL 774 will depart Melbourne just after midnight, arriving in Tokyo at 9:05 am and JL773 departing Tokyo in the morning (10:30am), with a same day arrival into Melbourne in the evening at 9:55 pm. JAL passengers flying from Australia now have 2 options, with a daily morning flight from Sydney or a daily midnight flight from Melbourne. Japan Airlines is offering a promotional economy class return fare from Melbourne from just AUD $699.
All flights from Australia will be upgraded to the new Boeing 787 Dreamliner, with the "Sky Wider" economy class seats being the widest in its class. Most airlines use a 3-3-3 configuration, however Japan Airlines has chosen to have one less seat per row, with a 2-4-2 configuration.

I knew my future was destined to be with Japan the moment I flew from Sydney to experience 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 JapanTravel.com. Please visit us in Kyoto or Osaka and have some green tea or sake with us.
