Introducing Zipair, Japan’s Newest LCC Airline

Airport Flight Chiba Kanto

Japan’s newest low-cost carrier, Zipair, embarked upon its first passenger flight on October 16.

The budget airline, which is a subsidiary of Japan Airlines, currently makes two roundtrip flights a week between Narita and Seoul. The debut of the flight came five months behind schedule due to the ongoing novel coronavirus pandemic. However, Zipair had been operating as a cargo flight since June.
