JAPAN: Vanilla Air Flys To Hong Kong

Where are the mascots? Vanilla Air’s new service from Tokyo Narita to Hong Kong launched initially, thrice-weekly flights.

Frequency will have increased to twice-daily flights. Hong Kong becomes Vanilla Air’s sixth route from Narita. The airport pair is already served by three other carriers, including Vanilla Air’s parent company, All Nippon Airways.

Vanilla Air, the fully-owned LCC subsidiary of All Nippon Airways, launched thrice-weekly (Tuesdays, Thursdays, Sundays) flights between Tokyo Narita (NRT) and Hong Kong (HKG). Frequency will increase to daily and then twice-daily.

The 2,940-kilometre route will be operated by the airline’s A320s and will face competition from Cathay Pacific Airways (28 weekly flights), All Nippon Airways (14) and Japan Airlines (seven).

Hong Kong becomes Vanilla Air’s sixth route from Narita, with a seventh (Kaohsiung in Taiwan)
