Likewise, including Peach’s existing Shin-Chitose (Sapporo) – Osaka (Kansai) route, it brings the total routes serving Shin-Chitose Airport to three as well, representing an effective expansion of Peach’s network from Tohoku and Hokkaido.
Peach’s CEO, Shinichi Inoue, commented, “With Sendai Airport as an air-travel gateway to Tohoku, Peach hopes to contribute even more to Tohoku reconstruction by bringing more customers than ever to the area. Peach will continue building ‘uniquely Peach’ bridges between Sendai Airport and destinations in and outside of Japan, and we are committed to injecting more fun into the skies of Tohoku and Miyagi, with Sendai as a hub, in ways that make our customers say ‘I’m glad Peach is finally here’. We invite people of Miyagi and Tohoku to casually fly Peach for all their travel needs.”
Commemorating Sendai as a new travel hub, a special website, COMOMO, has also been set up in a joint project with Miyagi Prefecture to introduce the fresh appeal of Tohoku and promote women’s travel to the area in a way only Peach can deliver.
