Japanese airline will launch low-cost flights between Tokyo and San Jose
An airline with a high-tech approach to low-cost air service will offer new jetliner flights between Tokyo and San Jose starting this year, the air carrier said Wednesday.
ZIPAIR said it will offer flights between Tokyo-Narita airport and San Jose International Airport starting in December.
The airline offers automated services to enable passengers to check in a day before their flights and provides tech-bolstered services on the company’s airplanes.
“ZIPAIR’s announcement reflects renewed global confidence in the strength of the San Jose market and the continued importance of Silicon Valley,” San Jose Mayor Sam Liccardo said.
Details of the new flights have yet to be fully sketched out.
“With the convenient nonstop flight between Tokyo Narita and Northern California, we certainly look forward to welcoming more visitors to travel between the U.S. and Asia,” said Shingo Nishida, president of ZIPAIR Tokyo.
