Budget air carrier to fly Okinawa route

Date Posted: 2011-11-04

Air Asia Japan, a budget carrier owned partially by All Nippon Airways will begin flying to Okinawa next year from its homebase in Narita, Chiba Prefecture.

Air Asia Japan will fly three domestic routes from Narita International Airport, as well as two international routes to South Korea. Flights to Okinawa, Sapporo and Fukuoka will start in August, using Airbus A320 aircraft. Air Asia will fly routes to Incheon and Busan, both in South Korea.

The new carrier is a joint venture between All Nippon Airways and Malaysia’s AirAsia Bhd. Air Asia Japan’s President, Kazuyuki Iwakata, says “we look forward to expanding our network to serve more guests in due course.” The budget airline has already applied for its air operator business license from the transport ministry. Another ANA joint venture, Peach Aviation Ltd., based at Kansai Airport, has already been granted its business license and will start flying from Osaka to Fukuoka and Sapporo next March, and from Osaka to Incheon near Seoul next May.
