Qantas on Wednesday resumed direct services between Australia and Narita. Qantas has been working closely with the Australian government, as well as industry and health experts including the International Air Transport Association, International Civil Aviation Organization, Australian Radiation Protection and Nuclear Safety Agency and World Health Organization to monitor the situation in Japan, said Qantas Chief Executive Officer Alan Joyce. "Together with the advice of these authorities and our own assessments, Qantas is now satisfied that infrastructure services have returned to normal in Tokyo and our crew will now be able to undertake appropriate rest breaks."
Since mid-March, Qantas had been flying from Sydney to Hong Kong, and then onto Narita flight and back again, so the crew wouldn't have to remain in Tokyo.
Qantas currently flies daily from Sydney to Tokyo and three times per week from Perth to Tokyo. The Perth-Tokyo services will be suspended from May 10.© Japan Today
