Cheap Fares To Europe And Asia From Japan?

Thu Nov 27, 2008 5:16 am

Are there any airlines offering cheap fares between Japan and Europe? What about to other areas of Asia from Japan?

I can at times get Jetstar sale fares for ~A$700 rtn between Australia and Japan, but what kind of discount prices and fares are available for flights elsewhere from Japan? Where are good places to book them? I'm thinking of around March next year.

Thanks!

Back when I used to actually pay for my travels, I used Kayak primarily. Some airlines often have best fare guarantees if you book directly thru their individual websites so it might behoove you to hunt for the best price airline-by-airline.
Change is: one airline, six continents!

Check Finnair, AY sometimes have very good deals from Europe to Japan (NRT KIX and NGO), not sure about the market situation in Japan.

Thanks guys. Checked Finnair and it would be really competitive - if the Aussie dollar was at the same rate to the yen as 6 months ago!

JL does offer good fares. They currently sell Y class for EUR 749,- allin return (departure from AMS), including a domestic connection for e.g. SPK, FUK, NGO, KIX or OKA.

Can you not fly to Seoul instead? Then fly onto London via Moscow with Aeroflot.

1,140 Au$ return from ICN-LHR and you get to fly on an Ilyushin Il-96  Smile

Sounds like a good idea with a 4 month old infant, nyet?  Smile

*Sigh* I know a lot of people hate LCC's but I'm feeling rather spoilt having Jetstar in Australia and in SE Asia, along with AirAsia, Tiger etc.

I have lived for 4 years in Japan. Number one Travel is a real good consolidator.
