Daily direct flights from Tokyo to Chennai starts from October

Japan-based All Nippon Airways (ANA) is planning to launch its direct daily flight from Tokyo to Chennai starting from October.

“We are focused on building the relationship between India and Japan. For this, ANA is planning to launch its operations from Tokyo to Chennai. Though this is the initial phase of discussion, but if it materialises, it will be a daily flight,” said Suman Billa, Joint Secretary, Ministry of Tourism at the reception of 3rd Meeting of India- Japan Tourism Council.

All Nippon Airways operates in Delhi and Mumbai. Chennai is the third line in India. If the plan is materialising, this will be the first ever direct flight connecting Japan and South India. The move is expected to be favourable for the businesses as the area is very famous for its automobile and high-tech industry.
