Japanese LCCs enabling affordable day trips

6-Sep-2012 2:51 PM

AirAsia regional head Zaman Ahma, speaking at CAPA's North Asia LCC and New Age Airlines conference in Macau, stated (06-Sep-2012) AirAsia Japan recently carried a group of 16 school children from Tokyo Narita to Sapporo so they could participate in a football match for the day. Meanwhile Peach has facilitated day trips to Seoul from Osaka Kansai, often for shopping trips. These examples show Japanese LCCs are enabling passengers to take affordable day trips which they were previously unable to do.
