Jetstar has introduced Osaka as its fourth international destination served from Darwin. Inaugurated on November 1, the service will initially be operated three times a week and will extend to four return flights a week from December as an extension of the existing Darwin-Singapore operation.
Japan is the Northern Territory’s largest trading partner and the new service is expected to be a significant boost to business in the region. It already exports more than $2.5 billion annually to Japan, a figure set increase as a result of the new service.
Jetstar CEO Australia & New Zealand David Hall said: “Japan is a key international inbound market for the Northern Territory and is currently the fourth largest international source market with around 25,000 visitors each year.”
