In 2012, All Nippon Airways diversified into Japan’s emerging low-cost carrier market by launching two new low-cost carriers: Peach Aviation and AirAsia Japan. After one year, Peach Aviation experienced financial losses and operations failures; after two years, the company announced cancellation of many flights. The second carrier, AirAsia Japan, ended its operations in 2013, and was later restructured as Vanilla Air, a wholly owned subsidiary of All Nippon Airways. Why was a highly successful flag and legacy carrier unable to successfully run a low-cost carrier in Japan?
