On June 28, Osaka-based Peach Aviation resumed its Naha-to-Hong-Kong flight, which had been out of operation for one year and eight months. There will be one flight per day each day of the week. To celebrate the resumption of operation, CEO Shinichi Inoue and others passed out stickers and other goods to 130 passengers on the first flight out.

Previously, the flight ran three or four times a week, but the company stopped its operation to use the planes for other routes in order to improve efficiency. It resumed operation of the route after acquiring more planes and becoming able to use a spot at Hong Kong International Airport as a result of its merger with Vanilla Air. The company now has five routes connecting Okinawa with overseas countries.

“Okinawa will be a bridge to the rest of Asia. We plan to continue adding more routes,” CEO Inoue.
