Japan's Peach Aviation eyes new hub in Hokkaido

OSAKA -- Budget airline Peach Aviation will base flights out of Hokkaido's New Chitose Airport as early as 2018, with international routes under consideration as well to serve the growing number of foreign visitors to the northern Japanese island.

The Osaka-based carrier will be able to fly out of New Chitose in the early morning by parking aircraft there overnight, resulting in a more convenient flight schedule. Peach hopes to lock in demand among visitors to Hokkaido's many popular tourist destinations.
