Vanilla Air adjusts Summer 2014 schedule.

Vanilla Air (JW/VNL) adjusted their Summer 2014 by extending three-times-daily Tokyo/Narita (NRT/RJAA) – Okinawa/Naha (OKA/ROAH) service through September 30th, instead of until August 31st as previously announced (Vanilla Air announces Summer 2014 schedule.). Meanwhile, one Narita – Sapporo/New Chitose (CTS/RJCC) round-trip (JW901/902) has been canceled from September 1st.

Flight schedule to/from Okinawa/Naha:
JW801 NRT 0800 1055 OKA 32A/320 Daily *Suspended from Oct/1.
JW803 NRT 0925 – 1220 OKA 32A/320 Daily
JW805 NRT 1455 – 1755 OKA 32A/320 Daily
JW802 OKA 1135 – 1415 NRT 32A/320 Daily* Suspended from Oct/1.
JW804 OKA 1345 – 1625 NRT 32A/320 Daily
JW806  OKA 1845 – 2125 NRT 32A/320 Daily

Abundant with pristine beaches and coral reefs, Okinawa is a favorite summer domestic destination, so at first it seemed peculiar to reduce frequency in the middle of the season. Rumor has it that Vanilla Air had plans to launch another new destination after Amami (ASJ/RJKA) (Vanilla Air announces Amami Oshima.) from the beginning of September but either it failed to materialize or has been postponed. Targeting holiday and resort destinations, the Narita-based 100%-subsidiary of ANA Holdings, parent of All Nippon Airways (NH/ANA), will launch Amami on July 1st.

Where will be the next new destination?
