Taiwan's TransAsia opens office in Osaka, adding flights to Tokyo

TAIPEI--Taiwan's TransAsia Airways (復興航空) said that it has opened a representative office in Osaka, Japan, to show its ambition to extend its reach in the Japanese market.

In addition, TransAsia will boost the number of round-trip flights to Tokyo to two per day starting from July, up from the current one round-trip flight, on the back of rising demand.

The Osaka office is part of efforts to boost the carrier's visibility in the Japanese market after it raised the number of round-trip flights to the Japanese city in March to two from one per day, TransAsia said.

The office is TransAsia's second foothold in Japan after the carrier set up a branch in Tokyo in March 2012.

TransAsia President Chooi Yee Choong said the establishment of the Osaka office shows that the carrier has put great emphasis on Japan's Kansai region, adding that the Tokyo branch and the Osaka office are expected to serve as dual drivers of the carrier's business growth in Japan.

In terms of the expanded services to Tokyo, TransAsia said it will use A330-300 aircraft on one of the two round-trip flights to the Japanese capital to cope with rising passenger demand.

TransAsia has also added 20 round-trip flights per month on the route between Taipei and Okinawa during the May-July period.

It added that due to strong demand, it is possible that TransAsia will keep the current schedule for the Okinawa route through August.

TransAsia also provides seven round-trip flights per week to Asahikawa, Hakodate, Sapporo and Kushiro in Hokkaido Prefecture.
