Does anyone know why these three fantastic airlines don’t fly to more destinations Australia? The market is clearly there given their competition (China Airlines, Korean Air, JAL) fly to multiple ports.


It’s a huge gap in the network for star alliance people wanting to go to east Asia from Melbourne (while avoiding terrible Air China!)

It would also allow for fairly convenient connections to the east coast of North America.

I wonder if we’ll ever see a heightened presence here.

Singapore airlines is one of the biggest airliens serving australia and best star alliance carrier to get to asia. As to Taiwan and other south-east asian cities, they are well connected by Star Alliance, SkyTeam and Oneworld carriers. SkyTeam people can chose from Korean, China Air and Jal, Star Alliance can choose from Singapore, EVA from brisbane and Air China and oneworld can choose from QF and CX to KA which connected to deeper asia.


Honestly, Taipei is probably not big enough of a market for EVA to operate to but they are increasing capacity slowly by bringing on the 787. And singapore is already the default choice for many so it doesn't really make sense for more *A airlines to operate. From MEL, Singapore airlines connects you to asia so that is not too bad.

Except that Singapore Airlines takes you to Singapore, which is a solid six and a half hours from Tokyo, Seoul and Taipei.

Tokyo has ANA, Seoul has Asiana and Taipei has EVA that only flies to brisbane but as I said Taipei is not a big enough market. It can be argued that all have a decent presence in AUS serving at least one destination that is easily connected by a short domestic hop.
