We are know, the Japanese aviation industry has been notorious for sky-high landing fees and fuel taxes, but not that's true the point of why AirAsia Japan fail. The airline's president Tomonori Ishii said the slump was partially due to the company's extra focus on online sales - a key strategy for AirAsia, but many Japanese travellers still book flights through travel agents.

Vanilla Air, which will begin flights in late December with two passenger planes to be leased from ANA, is to target travellers heading for resort destinations.

All of AirAsia Japan's 420 staff will now become employees of Vanilla Air.

Ishii said the carrier would remain based at Narita airport, and aims to serve travellers to resort destinations both at home and overseas, mainly in Asia.

"We will begin with short-distance services but want to expand the range to mid- and long-distances in line with ANA's branding strategy," Ishii said, adding that it would also increase the number of airplanes to 10 in 2015.

He said further details about the new operation, including destinations and ticket fees, would be announced in late September.

A company spokeswoman said the new company would cooperate with travel agents, while introducing a new online ticketing system that "can be fit to local customers".

Bombardier delays CSeries inaugural flight


Montreal Canada, Bombardier has confirmed it will delay by some weeks the first flight of its CSeries regional commercial jet. The Bombardier said: “The highly technical last steps are taking more time than initially anticipated to validate the overall systems and ongoing software integration”. The aircraft’s twice-delayed first flight was expected by the end of July.

“While the process has taken more time than we had expected, we are pleased with the results and are very comfortable taking more time to ensure the required integration is finalized and the CSeries aircraft is cleared for its first flight,” explained Mike Arcamone, President of Bombardier Commercial Aircraft.

In its final testing stage in preparation for first flight, FTV1 is undergoing pre-flight tests including on-ground simulated flight tests to ensure the first aircraft behaves as modeled.

FTV1 was supposed to be flying by the end of July. That was the date given by Bombardier after the previous first flight date at the end of June slipped by a month.  Last Wednesday was one week before the end of July, and Mike Arcamone, President, Bombardier Commercial Aircraft, made the announcement about the further delay.

On July 24 integration of the CSeries aircraft’s auxiliary power unit and Pratt & Whitney PurePower Geared Turbofan PW1500G engines were successfully conducted, allowing for testing of the aircraft’s key systems. Bombardier also confirmed the latest software upgrades continue to be successfully completed.

Arcamone stated, “Seeing the first CSeries aircraft power up on the tarmac was a thrilling event. We have now entered the ultimate phase of systems integration and validation on the first flight test vehicle as we submit brand new technology to in-depth tests. While the process has taken more time than we had expected, we are pleased with the results and are very comfortable taking more time to ensure the required integration is finalized and the CSeries aircraft is cleared for its first flight.”

In the last week of June, Bombardier applied to the Canadian aviation regulator, Transport Canada, for permission to fly FTV1. The CSeries may be the most advanced commercial jetliner ever produced in Canada, so I wouldn’t be surprised if Transport Canada is taking their time with the evaluation.


There’s still more engines runs, vibration testing, and low and high speed taxiing to be completed before FTV1 flies.

Bombardier has booked orders and commitments for 388 CSeries aircraft, of which 177 are firm orders.
