Skymark eyes air routes abandoned by others

Date Posted: 2009-09-10

Japan’s largest discount air carrier could begin its first regular overseas flight services early in 2010 as it moves to expand its customer-passenger base.

Skymark Airlines based in Tokyo says its first international route will be between Okinawa and Taiwan. Skymark president Shinichi Nishikubo says the expansion to other countries could move forward “if there is a demand, and if we can see profitability.” He says the airline is not deterred by route contractions being undertaken by Japan Airlines and All Nippon Airways, the country’s two largest air carriers.

Nishikubo says JAL and ANA decisions to discard unprofitable routes doesn’t mean Skymark couldn’t make them profitable. He says Skymark is now studying the feasibility of opening new routes to Korea, the Philippines and Hong Kong in the coming year.
