Peach links to Ishigaki in Japan and Busan in South Korea
Peach’s Okinawa Naha to Ishigaki
Peach, the Japanese LCC in which All Nippon Airways (ANA) has a major stake, launched two new routes last Friday 13 September. Daily flights have been introduced between the airline's base at Osaka Kansai (KIX) and Busan (PUS) in South Korea, a sector length of just 570 kilometres. Competition on the route comes from Air Busan, Asiana Airlines and Korean Air, who all operate the route with twice-daily flights. Peach's second new route is between Okinawa (OKA) and Ishigaki (ISG), which are both cities on separate islands south of mainland Japan. You can read more about Okinawa Naha Airport in this week's airport analysis. Competition on this route will be particularly fierce with ANA operating eight daily flights, Japan Transocean Air nine daily flights, and Skymark Airlines four daily flights. According to data from Airbus, Peach's current fleet comprises 10 A320s.
