Peach Announces Opening of its first South East Asia Route: From Bangkok to Okinawa beginning February 20 “Flying Trains” is coming to Thailand very soon!

     One of the most well-known up and coming airline from Japan, Peach Aviation Limited (“Peach”; Representative Director and CEO: Shinichi Inoue, Headquarters: Osaka, Japan) announced that it will soon open a new route between Bangkok and Okinawa.
Daily flights will be serviced from Bangkok to Okinawa beginning February 20 and from Okinawa to Bangkok starting February 19, 2017. 
Peach Representative Director and CEO: Shinichi Inoue said about the new route between Bangkok and Okinawa will finally start to happen in Southeast Asia after the long waiting.   
“I feel a very strong sense of fate in the fact that we will be able to start servicing this route in 2017, the 130th anniversary of friendly ties between Thailand and Japan. I really hope Peach servicing the route as a “bridge of Asia” would make Thais and people who live in South East Asia, surround countries as well as Japanese people can easily start the journey by plane.”
【Goals to open Bangkok Route】
The concept of the casualness of Peach's service is “flying trains”. It is a totally new style airline which aims to be an airborne version of people everyday trains especially for Thai people in this time. With the easy servicing process, the low price, our ‘everyday trains’ will make everyone can go to Japan easier. Accoording to the new route in Bangkok, we will help Thai and Japanese people getting closer. And we really hope the exchange between Thai people who live in the centre of South East Asia as well as the people in nearby countries and Japanese people will happen easier and gettting used to visit each other.”
Peach will continue to aim to become “a bridge between Japan and the rest of Asia”, aggressively offer routes, and deliver its customers happy journeys in the sky.
