OSAKA -- Japanese low-cost carrier Peach Aviation is considering flying to Southeast Asia as early as 2020, hoping to capture travel demand around the fast-growing region.

Thailand, Vietnam, Indonesia, Singapore and Malaysia are among the likely destinations cited by CEO Shinichi Inoue for the seven- to nine-hour medium-haul service slated to begin around that year. "Hub airports are expected to help attract passengers from surrounding areas," Inoue told Nikkei recently.
