The 2015 Asia Pacific LCC of the Year that Peach has received is an award that is presented to a low cost carrier that has made achievements of particular note in the Asia Pacific region. Peach Representative Director and CEO Shinichi Inoue said about the selection of Peach as LCC of the Year:
“I would like to express my heartfelt gratitude to everyone who has been rooting for Peach.
Peach has achieved a single-year surplus in two years and one month since starting its
operation in March 2012 and has proved that an LCC business model in Japan, which
everyone had been negative about, would work effectively as long as conditions had been
We currently operate nine international routes and 13 domestic routes, serving not only
passengers in Japan, but also customers from South Korea, Hong Kong, and Taiwan and other Asian regions as we contribute in achieving inbound passengers to Japan.
Our selection as LCC of the Year is an indication that Peach has been recognized as a leading airline in Asia.
I am also deeply moved that this has become a major step in achieving our vision to “become a bridge between Japan and Asia”. Peach will continue to aggressively expand its routes while embracing its foremost priority of safe operation, and we will continue to make efforts to offer our customers new ways to use and enjoy flying.”
