ANA considers launch of Kansai-based LCC

All Nippon Airways is considering plans to establish a Kansai Airport-based LCC to operate domestic and international (China and other Asia) services (The Yomiuri Shimbun, 20-Jun-2010). The carrier plans to offer international fares at approximately half the rate of major airlines, while domestic fares will be priced at less than JPY10,000 (USD111). ANA aims to compete with LCCs in other Asian countries, with the carrier reportedly planning to launch LCC operations in the next fiscal year at the earliest. The LCC will reportedly be branded separately from ANA.
