Published on : Tuesday, October 31, 2017

indexMr. Paul Papalia, Australian tourism minister explains that non-stop Perth-Japan flights are about to be introduced and direct flights connecting India and the WA capital are the next agenda on the Government list.

 

On Saturday, Mr Papalia jet set home from Japan after a charm offensive to persuade two major airlines of Japan to introduce direct flights to Perth from Tokyo.

 

Flanked by chief executives from Tourism WA and Perth Airport, he talked with the bosses of Japan Airlines and All Nippon Airways to launch a direct Tokyo-Perth route.

 

On Friday night while speaking from Japan, Mr Papalia explained the meetings had been “really productive”.

 

“They recognise the potential. There’s great interest,” he said.

 

Top officials from both the carriers had accepted an invitation to explore Perth in forthcoming days. They also convinced to be part of a separate ministerial-level working groups set up for “progressing options for direct flights”.

 

Though it was too early for details, Mr. Papalia mentioned that the airlines could be provided with sweeteners like a joint marketing campaign to make sure the direct flights were an achievement.
