Easrlier in the year, I was watching the development of LCC competition in Japan with interest. Peach Aviation (dba "Peach") was planning to introduce a "clean" LCC product as a JV of ANA. Since the first flight in March, mums the word.
Quoting davidho1985 (Reply 1): Recently, they have moved their operation to Terminal 2 (new dedicated LCC terminal) in Osaka.
I don't think the new terminal is an LCC terminal. I think that it is solely for the use of Peach (though I could be wrong!). KIX has announced their plan to build another new terminal which will a dedicated LCC terminal for all other LCCs.
Quoting PHX787 (Reply 3): Buddy of mine is training to fly with Peach beginning next year in March.
Good stuff! Girl I know will start training to be an FA on Peach in January next year.

Anna Aero have been covering this market quite extensively. A report on 24 Oct 12: http://www.anna.aero/2012/10/24/peac...6pc-of-japanese-domestic-capacity/
Says that LCCs are approaching 4% of domestic capacity and the "Jetstar Japan currently leads the way among the newcomers with 1.7% of the market, followed by Peach (1.2%) and AirAsia Japan (0.7%)."
There is a table showing the Nov 12 breakdown for 13 domestic airlines, ANA still has just over 50% of the market.
