Jetstar Japan launches new domestic routes from Osaka Kansai Airport
- Jetstar Japan continued expanding its low-cost network out of Osaka Kansai (KIX) on 24 August, launching two new domestic routes. The A320 operator now flies daily to both Fukuoka (FUK) and Sapporo Chitose (CTS), taking on both the country’s legacy airlines and low-cost carriers. On the route to Fukuoka in the south of Japan, competition comes from thrice-daily flights on the also new Osaka-based low-cost airline Peach, as well as also daily flights on ANA, while on the route to Sapporo in the north of Japan, there are four other operators, all with multiple-daily flights; ANA with five, Peach with four, JAL with four and Skymark with three flights a day.
