Qatar Airways is pleased to announce services to Osaka, Japan starting on 6 April 2020. The second largest metropolitan area of Japan, Osaka will be the airline’s third gateway into the country.

Qatar Airways began direct services to Tokyo Narita in 2010 and launched its Tokyo Haneda service in 2014 from Hamad International Airport (HIA) in Doha.

The flight will be operated by an Airbus A350-900 aircraft, featuring 36 seats in Business Class and 247 seats in Economy Class. The operation will initially begin with five-times weekly service, increasing to a daily service from 23 June 2020.

Qatar Airways Group Chief Executive, HE Akbar Al Baker, said they are truly delighted to bring their award-winning service to Osaka, and to add the highly sought after Japanese destination to their global network.

Osaka is a very important destination, and our service to the cosmopolitan city will enable us to provide a seamless journey for our passengers connecting from our extensive network of more than 160 destinations worldwide.’

Osaka has been the economic powerhouse of the Kansai Region for many centuries. The Kansai Region is home to many well-known attractions like Arima Onsen – one of the most popular and oldest hot springs in Japan; and Nara, the country’s former historic capital. Visitors can also admire historical landmarks including the UNESCO World Heritage Site such as the Himeji Castle.
