Japans third largest airline, Skymark Airlines, has taken delivery of the first two Airbus A330-300s out of a total of ten on lease.

Skymark Airlines A330s, configured with 271 seats, will start scheduled flights in April 2014 from Tokyo Haneda to Fukuoka.

Skymark Airlines has also announced plans for A330-300 services from Tokyo Haneda to Sapporo and Naha at a later date.

Shinichi Nishikubo, President of Skymark Airlines, said: We are confident that with these cost-efficient, reliable A330-300s in our fleet, we will grow our business and win market share by attracting passengers who demand only the highest levels of comfort. Together with our A380s to come, we confirm Skymarks intention to remain at the forefront of our market, having one of Japans youngest, most modern fuel-efficient fleets.

The A330-300 received Validation Type Certificate (VTC) from the Japanese Ministry of Land, Infrastructure, Transport and Tourism in January 2014.

Skymark Airlines signed a Flight Hour Services (FHS) components contract with Airbus covering support for all of 10 leased A330 aircraft. Airbus Customer Services will provide spare parts availability guaranteed through an extensive scope of more than 700 line replaceable units. Skymark Airlines A330s will be equipped with Rolls-Royce Trent 700 engines.
