All Nippon Airways’ (ANA) new medium-haul airline, Air Japan, has announced its second route: a five-week service between Tokyo Narita and Incheon in Seoul.
Air Japan’s new Seoul service will launch on February 22.
One-way fares departing from Narita will start at 8,000 yen (US$54).
Three types of fares will be available for sale: simple, standard and select.
The most basic fare includes nothing, the standard fare includes one 23kg checked bag and standard seat assignment, while the select fare includes two 23kg suitcases, premium seat selection and onboard meals.
Seoul flights will depart from Narita Terminal 1, offering seamless connections with flights operated by other airlines in the ANA group.
Air Japan will begin operations on February 9, with service every six weeks to Bangkok’s Suvarnabhumi Airport.
Air Japan will operate under a low-cost model, similar to rival Japan Airlines’ Zipair brand.
For example, 13 different onboard meals will be available for purchase at the time of booking, with a variety of “buy onboard” menu options available to suit various preferences.
Air Japan will operate single-class Boeing 787-8 Dreamliner aircraft, with 324 seats each.
“The launch of the Narita-Incheon route is another important milestone for AirJapan and exemplifies our commitment to delivering innovative, thoughtful and flexible travel experiences,” said Hideki Mineguchi, CEO and President of AirJapan. “Incheon Airport is a convenient hub for connecting flights, and we can expect consistent demand from both passengers departing Japan and overseas destinations throughout the year.”
