Okinawa by Jetstar
I flew to Okinawa, south most island of Japan by Jetstar, LCC of Japan.
Jetstar Japan is a joint venture between Australia’s Qantas Group, Japan Airlines, and Mitsubishi Corporation.
Jetstar Japan is one of the top two domestic LCCs in the industry, sharing the top two spots with Peach.
LCC companies in Japan
Jetstar launched Narita-Sapporo and Fukuoka routes in July 2012.
Then it’s followed by Naha, Kansai, Oita, and Matsuyama, expanding its routes throughout Japan.
Based at Narita, Chubu, and Kansai airports, the airline serves all major cities in Japan.
And it has been expanding its route network since 2015, a new international Hong Kong route.
I used Jetstar for the first time to go to Naha Airport in Okinawa.
I always use Japan air line, but Jetstar was very cheap at 14820 yen ($105) for a round trip.
In December, airfares and hotel rates become very expensive as it gets close to the end of the year.
So it is relatively cheap to depart on December 12 and return on December 19.
This is my first Jetstar flight, I report some impressions.
The departure airport is Narita Airport.
I compare it to Haneda Airport, which I usually use.
It takes 1 hour and 19 minutes from my home to Haneda Airport and costs 710 yen.
And 1 hour and 38 minutes to Narita Airport and costs 2975 yen, which takes about 20 minutes and costs 2265 yen more than Haneda airport.
The cheapest case by local train which takes 2 hours and 5 minutes, costs 1,387 yen.
If you use Narita Airport, you need to take into account that the travel time and cost will be higher than at Haneda Airport.
Also, even after arriving at Narita Airport, the domestic flights are located at the end of Terminal 3.
It’s build at the edge, so you will have to walk 15 minutes after arriving by train.
This is also a disadvantage compared to the ease of movement within Haneda Airport.
The cabin is clean and functional.
The seat is a bit tight but reasonable.
I like the tables and other items that are clean and well made.
There is a USB port so you can charge your phone before landing.
There is no music, so I think it is a good idea to bring pictures and music saved on your phone and use them while charging.
Foods and drinks
There is no free food service basically.
So if you need one you order them.
There are light drinks and foods.
I had hot coffee.
Unfortunately, it is not drip coffee, but powdered coffee such as Nescafe.
Well, it was only 250 yen, but I still wish they would make drip coffee.
In Japan, you can get drip coffee at convenience stores for 100 yen.
Departing Narita Airport at 8:40 a.m., I arrived at Okinawa Naha Airport at 12:00 p.m.
Now, I’m going to relax and spend some time in Okinawa!
How is it?
I hope this post will help you!
I’m Nobu , one heart enjoy together!!!
