I was riding the Chubu Express Meitetsu train into Nagoya this morning when I notices a sign for Skymark.

Checked their website
It showed three routes starting Feb 1
NGO-HND (1 daily)
NGO-CTS (3 daily)
NGO-Ibaraki (1 daily)

This is the first NGO-HND route. We have NGO-NRT but HND is not connected.
Sapporo is already a major destination in their network and Ibaraki has become a northern Tokyo destination/focus.

It is interesting that they brought NGO into their network. To me this looks like a part of a greater strategy for future international expansion.

Look at this schedule
SKY062 B737 23:40 00:40
SKY061 B737 22:55 23:55

This would line up with HND international departures window more than with Skymark's domestic schedule out of HND. It seems that they will run much of their international routes out of HND but I wonder if they might take advantage of NGO's low operation costs and 24 hour ops (well close to 24 hour ops).

SKY761 B737 07:00 08:40
SKY763 B737 11:45 14:40
SKY765 B737 18:55 20:35

SKY762 B737 09:15 11:10
SKY764 B737 15:15 18:20
SKY766 B737 21:10 23:05

SKY068 B737 11:45 12:40

SKY069 B737 17:15 18:20
