Peach to add a Sendai hub in the summer of 2017

Peach Aviation (Osaka-Kansai) is planning to add a fourth hub at Sendai for the summer of 2017 according to ZipanguFlyer. Sendai is located in the northeast section of Japan. Peach currently serves Sendai with a single route from its Osaka (Kansai) hub.

The Sendai Airport was involved in the devastating March 11, 2011 Tōhoku earthquake and then was subsequently flooded by the tsunami that hit the coast of Japan in this area.

The rising waters flooded the tarmac, taxiways and runway of the airport. The flood waters actually reached parts of the second floor of the passenger terminal.
