Jetstar Japan Nagasaki

Jetstar Japan introduced Nagasaki to its Tokyo Narita network on 6 September, with the carrier planning to link the two Japanese airports with a daily rotation using its fleet of 180-seat A320s. A greeting ceremony was held at Nagasaki as the inaugural flight pulled onto stand, with airline and airport staff posing for a photo with the aircraft for the media.

  • Jetstar Japan inaugurated its latest domestic route on 6 September, launching a daily service from Tokyo Narita (NRT) to Nagasaki (NGS), with the latter becoming a new destination on the airline’s network. The carrier will serve the 1,011-kilometre airport pair using its fleet of 180-seat A320s, with OAG schedules indicating that the low-cost carrier will be the only operator between the two points. While no direct competition is offered on the route, it should be noted that Japan Airlines (six times daily), All Nippon Airways (30 times weekly) and Solaseed Air (three times daily) already connecting Nagasaki to Tokyo Haneda in the capital. With this launch, Jetstar Japan now offers 11 domestic routes from Narita, plus it serves international cities including Hong Kong, Manila, Shanghai Pudong and Taipei Taoyuan.
