“Thank you for your patience, Peach’s international flights are back! Peach’s international flights have been suspended for a long time due to the Corona disaster, but Peach will gradually resume flights starting with this route, which was Peach's first international flight. Peach will continue to provide easy, low-fare air travel as a bridge between Asia and Japan and Korea. Peach will continue to expand its international network in order to attract more international visitors to the 2025 Osaka World Expo by resuming international flights.
