本月14日当地时间下午5点22分,澳洲航空 (Qantas Airways) 首班悉尼直飞大阪QF33航班顺利降落在大阪关西国际机场,标志着首条联结这两座亚太区主要城市的空中桥梁正式开通。澳航全新升级的A330-303客机被选作为这条全年固定航线的执飞机型,为旅客提供商务舱和经济舱两种舱位选择,每周三班往来于悉尼国际机场与大阪关西国际机场,全程飞行时间约8小时。

1947年12月18日,澳洲航空开通了第一条澳大利亚飞往日本的航线,当时以英国Avro Lancanstrian客机历经27小时21分钟的长途飞行,将6位乘客连同1200吨航空包裹从悉尼带到了日本山口县防府市。今年12月18日,恰逢该航线开航70周年,悉尼-大阪航线的开通正是为了向两国民航历史上极具意义的首条航线致敬!

作为现已开通的悉尼、布里斯班、墨尔本往返东京航线的补充,悉尼-大阪航线首次将澳大利亚最大的出入境口岸与亚洲重要的交通枢纽大阪关西国际机场连接,并接驳多条由集团旗下捷星航空运营的境内航线,兼顾多个主要城市的覆盖,全面扩展了澳洲航空在亚洲航线的辐射网络。

澳洲航空国际首席执行官Alison Webster女士表示:“今年正值澳航首条澳洲-日本航线开航70周年,于此时迎来往来于两国之间的第四条国际航线,令我们感到无比雀跃!早在今年7月,悉尼-大阪航线作为季节性服务宣布之初,便受到了各界的广泛关注和欢迎。数据显示,2017年赴澳的日本旅客较去年同比增长了23%,在澳停留时间以及消费金额都有明显增长,于此同时,来自日本学生团队和跨州长线游旅客的预订数量也突飞猛进。为了满足与日俱增的运力需求,同时促进亚太区域经济、商贸、文化的友好往来,澳航决定将这条悉尼-大阪航线作为固定线路全年运营。”

据介绍,在澳洲航空全球化拓展的航路版图中,亚洲一直都是至关重要的组成部分。目前,澳洲航空现正运营的国际航线中,一半以上服务于澳大利亚与亚洲国家主要城市之间的空际往来,相比十年前仅三分之一的线路覆盖可谓是质的飞跃。悉尼-大阪航线的开航也意味着澳洲航空将开启在亚太地区里程碑式的战略发展蓝图!

QANTAS’ NEW OSAKA-SYDNEY FLIGHTS TAKE OFF

Qantas’ direct flights between Osaka and Sydney take off today, providing passengers with another gateway into Australia following strong growth in travel between the two countries.

Qantas’ fourth route between Japan and Australia begins as the airline celebrates 70thyears of flying between the two countries.

The year-round direct flights will operate three times per week with Qantas’ upgraded two-class Airbus A330 aircraft and will be the only direct service linking Osaka and Sydney.

The service adds to the airline’s popular Tokyo (Haneda)-Sydney, Tokyo (Narita)-Brisbane and Tokyo (Narita)-Melbourne services and complements Jetstar’s Osaka-Cairns service. With Jetstar’s flights from Tokyo (Narita) to Cairns and the Gold Coast, customers will have even more options when travelling between Japan and Australia.

Qantas International CEO Alison Webster said it was an exciting time to be launching the new service with travel between the two countries booming.

“We initially announced the route as a seasonal service but quickly extended it to year-round to meet customer demand,” she said.

“Australia has seen a 23 per cent increase in the number of Japanese travellers visiting the country with many staying longer and spending more while they’re here.[1]

“In Japan, Australian travellers are looking forward to a number of exciting events over the next few years, including the 2019 Rugby World Cup and 2020 Olympic and Paralympic Games.

“And with the 2015 Free Trade Agreement hitting its stride, we’re confident the service will also open up new opportunities for companies to explore and build business in Japan’s second largest city, further strengthening the trade relationship between the two countries.”

The Qantas Group operates the largest Australia-Japan network and the largest domestic network in Australia. Through Jetstar Japan, the Group also operates the largest low-cost domestic network across Japan. More than half of the Qantas Group’s international capacity is directed towards Asia.

Qantas is working with Tourism Australia and Destination New South Wales to showcase Australia and highlight the new service in Japan. 

Launch celebrations will take place at Kansai International Airport ahead of the inaugural flight between Osaka and Sydney, with a traditional flower presentation to the Operating Captain and a ribbon cutting.  Passengers travelling on the inaugural flight from Osaka will also receive a commemorative gift.
