Eastar Jet’s international airport strategy in developed primary markets

    Eastar Jet VP Pil Je Cho, speaking at the CAPA LCCs in North Asia Summit, stated (11-Jun-2018) Eastar Jet’s international airport strategy in developed primary markets, such as Japan, includes targeting secondary airports as hub airports are typically saturated. Mr Cho said the LCC could consider operating to airports like Asahikawa Airport as an alternative to capacity constrained Sapporo Chitose Airport, or Ibaraki Airport as an alternative to Tokyo Narita Airport and Tokyo Haneda Airport. He added that in less developed markets, such as Vietnam, Eastar targets primary hub airports.
