2017 marks the 70th Anniversary of Qantas service in Japan. Qantas' first commercial flight arrived in Hofu, Yamaguchi Prefecture with 6 people and 1,200 pounds of mail on 18th December 1947, after a 27 hour and 21 minute flight from Sydney via Darwin and Manila.  

Today, there are daily flights from Haneda to Sydney, Narita to Brisbane and Narita to Melbourne, and 3 new services per week from Kansai to Sydney that started on the 14th December. 

Congratulations to Qantas on this impressive achievement!
