DALLAS — AirJapan (NQ), the new brand of ANA Group, has announced the launch of flights between Narita and Seoul starting on February 22, 2024. Seoul-Incheon International Airport (ICN) is NQ’s second international destination. The airport is strategically positioned as a convenient hub for connecting flights.
In light of the current international economic and social situation, NQ recognizes Asia as a key growth area in the post-COVID era. Operating as a “hybrid airline,” NQ aims to leverage the strengths of ANA (NH), a full-service carrier, and Peach (MM), a low-cost carrier (LCC).
This unique approach allows the charter airline to prioritize both comfort and affordable fares while also clearly defining the distinct roles of the three brands. As part of the ANA Group, NQ is committed to providing customers with a wide range of options and exceptional travel experiences.
