Vanilla Air CEO Update

International flights are a growing part of Vanilla Air's operation. President Tomonori Ishii says over 75% of passengers on international flights are foreigners visiting Japan, helping Japan achieve unprecedented visitor arrival figures. At its Tokyo Narita base, Vanilla competes with sister LCC Peach Aviation. Peach is also flying internationally from Haneda, which Vanilla may consider. Vanilla is also considering international service to Micronesia while China is a large future opportunity. Hawaii and Southeast Asia with widebody aircraft could form part of the carrier's 2016-2018 corporate strategy.
