ANA Unveils First 'AirJapan' Aircraft

TOKYO, Feb 07 (News On Japan) - As travel demand rebounds, ANA Holdings has unveiled the first aircraft of its new international brand "AirJapan," set to begin operations on Friday, February 9. ANA Holdings, parent company of All Nippon Airways and low-cost carrier Peach, introduces AirJapan as the third brand in its international flight segment.

The brand will feature an all-economy class setting, refurbishing Boeing 787 aircraft to increase seat numbers while ensuring passenger space. A pricing model based on the number of checked bags has been adopted to keep the base fares low.

Targeting tourists from Southeast Asia, AirJapan will commence operations from Narita Airport to Bangkok, offering flights at a starting price of 15,500 yen one-way on the 9th.

Plans are in place to extend services to Seoul and Singapore subsequently.
