Peach Aviation – New Discount Japanese Airline
Japan has a new low-cost airline, partially owned by ANA. It’s called Peach Aviation (“peach” happens to be an anagram of “cheap”):
The company has also moved from Tokyo to a location near Kansai International Airport, with its flights planned to start next year at fares that would be some 50 percent lower than those offered now by major Japanese carriers.
Peach Aviation intends to launch flights connecting the western Japan airport to Fukuoka and Sapporo in March 2012 and another flight linking the airport to Incheon International Airport near Seoul in May of the same year. Its workforce will increase from about 50 at present to some 200 by March 2012.
