This will be good news for the sandgropers if it takes off. The WA Govt is in talks with both ANA and JAL to launch direct flights between Perth and Tokyo, something they have been seeking for over a decade according to The West Australian.From https://thewest.com.au/news/wa/wa-government-bids-to-get-more-direct-flights-from-asian-destinations-to-perth-ng-b88608362z

SQ with "55 direct flights to Perth a week" ? Possibly that is counting fights in both directions, not "to Perth". Direct flights to Japan were operated by Qantas until the tsunami in 2011. It would be great for Perth for one of the airlines to re-start direct services.

He's actually right... SQx4, Scoot x2, JQx2 and QFx1 daily = more than 55 :) and that's one way

He said Singapore not SQ

There was an article on Australian Aviaton a few weeks ago that suggested it and I have a bit of inside knowledge

I read this while sitting in the lounge in MEL having just arrived on QF80 from Narita and waiting for my connecting flight to Perth. They would have my business should this eventuate!

QF either upgrades to a330 or has 2x b737 flights on Friday and weekends during school holiday/peak periods.

As a regular Per- Japan traveller I am usually flying CX morning flight from Perth and onto a CX Japan flight. Would be really good to get the direct Japan flight again since Qantas stopped Perth to Tokyo a few years back.

Hopefully it’s before the 2020 Olympics. Love to fly directly to Tokyo for it

I suspect there will be quite a few Travel Agent charter options available for that if the airlines aren't doing it themselves...
