And here's yet another airline i've heard nothing about. Are they flying to the Izu islands or something? Ryukyu islands?

Lol, according to their wiki and the planespotters page, they plan to fly out of FUK.

Looks like it's a regional line around northern Kyushu and western Shikoku.

I've seen this green before. It's a symbol of Fukuoka.

2 possibilities- the reg could be on the starboard side, or ATR photoshopped it out, for later use in a press release?

If you look at the previous photo (posted by ATR) in reply 8, it had the Reg on the Port side. I doubt they photoshopped it out.

That's strange...I don't know why it flew without a reg. Maybe it had a test reg from france? It's not in Japan yet, is it?

Either via Russia, Mongolia, South Korea, and FUK, or via Iceland, Bangor, Canada, Alaska, Northern Japan, Niigata, then to FUK.
