StarFlyer challenges ANA and JAL to Yamaguchi-Ube
StarFlyer has become the third Japanese carrier to link Tokyo Haneda and Yamaguchi-Ube with the start on 26 October of thrice-daily flights using A320s. The carrier’s A320 is seen taxiing in after arriving from Tokyo Haneda on Sunday morning.
- StarFlyer became the third Japanese airline to serve the market between Tokyo Haneda (HND) and Yamaguchi-Ube (UBJ) with the introduction of thrice-daily A320 flights on 26 October. The 798-kilometre route is already served by All Nippon Airways (42 weekly flights) and Japan Airlines (28). To find the slots at Tokyo Haneda for this new service, StarFlyer has reduced frequency on its Fukuoka service from 10 daily flights to seven. StarFlyer now serves four destinations from Tokyo Haneda; Kitakyushi (84 weekly flights), Fukuoka (49), Osaka Kansai (35) and now Yamaguchi-Ube.
