Japanese low cost carrier (LCC) Peach Aviation has entered discussions with sister airline Vanilla Air to align their operations. Japan’s All Nippon Airways owns 67 percent of Peach Aviation’s shares and fully owns Vanilla Air, and the parent company announced in its new five-year growth plan in February that the LCCs will work closely “to entrench their profitability base”.
The Northeast Asian domestic and international LCC markets grew a respective 10 percent and 14 percent in 2016, and expectations for further growth have prompted the relaunch of Air Asia Japan.
Separately, ANA announced that its two LCCs will move into the medium-haul markets of Asia and Southeast Asia by 2020.
