AirJapan, the newest medium-haul low-cost carrier, is slated to launch in 2024.
As a result, it has announced further expansion to another Asian city to offer its customers more selection during the early launch stages.
A February 2024 Launch Is Coming
After many years of planning, ANA has announced that AirJapan will officially launch on February 9, 2024.
AirJapan will serve Tokyo Narita to Bangkok Suvarnabhumi with five flights per week.
The new endeavour sees ANA hoping to offer medium-haul flights from February and will face significant competition on these routes.
Understanding The Mission Of AirJapan
AirJapan wants to offer customers a new style of travel that allows passengers to customise the types of services they need.
This is similar to many other low-cost carriers that offer cheap tickets and make significant money through add-ons. These can include but wouldn’t be limited to food, better seating, seat selection, checked baggage, early boarding, and more.
New Route To Be Added
AirJapan will add service between Tokyo Narita and Seoul Incheon from February 22, 2024, as part of its initial route network.
Operating as NQ21 and NQ22, the flight will depart on Tuesdays, Wednesdays, Thursdays, Saturdays and Sundays for five weekly flights.
Flights will depart Narita at 1055 before arriving in Incheon at 1330. The aircraft will leave Incheon at 1440 before returning to Narita at 1645.
The AirJapan Fleet
AirJapan will begin operations with the Boeing 787 Dreamliner. These 787s come from ANA and are configured in all-economy as the airline looks to offer an attractive price point.
