AirAsia Japan returns to the Japanese skies, offering flights between Nagoya and Sapporo. The twice-daily service begins on 29th October 2017, connecting Nagoya, capital of Japan’s Aichi Prefecture to the capital of northern Hokkaido prefecture.
The Japanese affiliate of the AirAsia Group has maintained interest in Nagoya since their earlier foray into this crowded market. AirAsia Group CEO Tony Fernandes made reference to this in his comments….
…. It’s great to be back in Japan. It hasn’t been easy, and I want to thank my partners Rakuten, Octave, Noevir and Alpen for their support and patience. Many people thought we would give up and not bother but we owe it to the people of Japan and our staff to keep going. This took a long time but, like good wine, all good things take time and we are off the taxiway and ready to take off. Tony Fernandes
