Japan Airlines has revealed that Zipair Tokyo will be the name of its new medium- and long-haul, low-cost carrier that will launch in the summer of 2020.

The startup has also filed its application for an air operators certificate on March 8, which specifies that it will operate Boeing 787-8s initially on routes from Tokyo Narita to Bangkok Suvarnhabhumi and Seoul Incheon airports.

Wonder if Zipair Tokyo will be to JAL what Scoot is to SQ and take over certain routes from the mother company. And will it have KUL be like Cathay and Cathay Dragon.

KA is not an LCC.

This is a rather conservative start up - only 2 aircraft added per year for the first 5 years. Looks like they are doing an experiment as they are not committing too many resources to it.

Not saying KA is an LCC.

 

As in handing over the NRT-KUL route to Zipair tokyo, like how cathay handed KL to Cathay Dragon.

Speaking of which, how is the load for JAL NRT-KUL?

CX transferred KUL to its full-service regional wing. How is this similar to JL and its new LCC?

Not LCC but a stepchild of CX which operates into secondary destinations like KUL.
