The new Qantas flights from Japan will bring 46,460 inbound seats a year and predicted to contribute $41 million in overnight visitor spending to Brisbane’s visitor economy.

Queensland’s Attracting Aviation Investment Fund (AAIF) currently supports six direct international services.

Over the next year, the AAIF is predicted to deliver up to $346 million in overnight international visitor expenditure and support 3,376 jobs
