New Japan Aviation (新日本航空 Shin Nihon Kōkū?) is a Japanese aviation services company that operates scheduled air service between Niigata and Sado Island, as well as flight training and other services from its headquarters at Kagoshima Airport.

History[edit]

NJA began scheduled service between Niigata and Sado in February 2011.[1] NJA suspended the route for eleven days in July 2012 after its Islander aircraft struck a car while taxiing at Niigata Airport.[2] NJA suspended the route again in February 2013 due to a faulty generator indicator on its Islander aircraft, which could only be fixed by importing special components.[3] The service resumed in August 2013.[4] It is the only airline currently providing scheduled service to Sado Island, although other scheduled operators have served the airport in the past.[5]
