IN BRIEF | Japan Airlines is considering expanding its flights to Australia, with Perth cited as a front-funner.
Such a move would see the Oneworld airline and Qantas partner launch the only direct flights between the WA capital and Tokyo.
JAL Chairman Masaru Onishi flagged the move in an interview this week with Japanese news service Kyodo News.
Sydney-Tokyo is the Japanese flag-carrier's sole Australian route, with arch-competitor ANA set to launch its Boeing 787 onto the same route on December 11.
