Full service Tokyo flights from $558 return

Posted: 3 April 2018 12:37 pm

Take off with Malaysia Airlines for less than Jetstar prices.

Jetstar might be the purveyor of cheap Japan flights but the budget airline has a new rival in the air at the moment and its name is Malaysia Airlines.

Until 10 April the full-service Malaysian carrier is offering flights to Tokyo from just $558 return. And while they're not for the coveted cherry blossom season, they are well-timed to catch the season's first snow throughout November 2018.

At its cheapest you'll be taking off from Melbourne, though flights out of Sydney and Adelaide aren't too far behind priced at $583 and $587 respectively.

With some of the best powder within reach, you don't want to wait too long to catch this sale.

How good are these fares?

These flights are some of the cheapest full-service fares for winter in Tokyo we've seen this year, skimming just under China Southern's $599 return sale. Sure, China Southern's a slightly higher quality airline than Malaysia Airlines. However, as long as you're not nit-picky about your service dropping from 4-star to 3-star, you're looking to pocket an extra $40+ bucks.

Now that's a lot of ramen.

Even compared to budget airlines like Jetstar, these fares fair better when the budget airline isn't hosting a sale.

We took a quick search on the Jetstar site for Sydney to Tokyo flights in November and discovered the cheapest to be $355 for an outbound journey on 14 November and $314 for an inbound journey on 21 November. This totals $669 return and comes up much pricier than Malaysia Airlines. These prices were correct at the time of writing and don't reflect sale fares which can find themselves as low as $367 return during ski season.
