Skymark Airlines adds Fukuoka link from Tokyo Narita
Skymark Airlines continues to expand its Japanese domestic network with the introduction from 1 February of double daily flights between Tokyo Narita (NRT) and Fukuoka (FUK) with its 737-800s. Direct competition is provided by ANA and JAL who both operate the route with each three daily flights. This becomes Skymark’s fifth domestic route from Narita in addition to the eight domestic destinations it serves non-stop from Tokyo Haneda, including Fukuoka. Competition between Tokyo Haneda and Fukuoka is intense, with both ANA and JAL operating around 120 weekly departures each, Skymark a further 70 and StarFlyer an additional 35.
