Japan Travel Bureau, the country’s leading travel agency, will start full-scale sales of discount overseas flight tickets beginning Feb. 16 to cope with the growing market for nonpackage-tour travelers, a spokesman for JTB said Thursday.

JTB will sell discount tickets at some 634 branches of its own and its affiliate, JTB Traveland, Inc. The tickets will cover departures on April 1 and later.
