Jetstar Japan aims to establish connections with proposed JAL low cost long haul carrier at Narita

    Jetstar Japan chief executive advisor Nick Rohrlach, speaking at the CAPA LCCs in North Asia Summit, stated (11-Jun-2018) Jetstar Japan is “really happy” about Japan Airlines‘ (JAL) plans to establish a long haul lost cost airline based at Tokyo Narita Airport, adding that it demonstrates JAL’s commitment to the LCC sector. Mr Rohrlach noted Jetstar Japan has the largest domestic network amongst Japan‘s LCCs in terms of destinations and frequencies, and said the LCC aims to establish connections between its domestic operations at Narita and the proposed long haul low cost airline’s international operations at Narita. He said airports in Europe, including London Gatwick Airport, are making efforts to facilitate LCC to LCC connections.
