Peach launches two domestic routes out of Osaka Kansai
Peach, the Japanese start-up low-cost airline launched in partnership with ANA, commenced operations on 1 March, as detailed in this week’s airline analysis. From its base at Osaka Kansai (KIX), Peach now flies its A320 aircraft on two domestic routes. By autumn this year, the base airport’s low-cost terminal will be completed, allowing further growth in the low-cost segment. Peach now serves Fukuoka (FUK) in the south of the country four times daily, competing with ANA’s twice-daily flights, while Sapporo Chitose (CTS) in the north of Japan is served thrice-daily by Peach in competition with ANA’s 35 and JAL’s 28 flights a week.
