ANA Holdings Inc. plans to launch a new international low-cost carrier in late 2023 or early 2024, joining its rival Japan Airlines Co. in a bet on a revival in tourism as the impact of the COVID-19 pandemic fades.
ANA said on Tuesday the carrier, Air Japan, would fly mid-range international flights to Asia-Pacific destinations, without disclosing planned routes. ANA already has a separate low cost carrier (LCC), Peach Aviation, which flies domestic routes as well as to a handful of short-haul Asian destinations.
