It operates services mainly between Miyazaki/Kumamoto/Nagasaki (Kyushu Island) and Tokyo. Beginning September 2007, flights to Kagoshima were scheduled to be introduced. Recently,[when?] the airline has announced it will offer discounts for foreign tourists that are up to 65% lower than regular fares. It is the first time a Japanese airline has offered a discount fare aimed only at tourists from abroad. The airline changed its branding to Solaseed Air in July 2011.
The airline was established in May 2002 and started operations in July 2002. It was formerly Pan Asia Airlines. It launched services as the fourth new airline in a deregulated Japanese market since 1998. The airline is owned by the Industrial Revitalisation Corporation of Japan (56.9%) and Mera Electric Industrial Corporation (11.7%).
Solaseed established the head office in the second floor of Miyazaki Airport Building (宮崎空港ビル,Miyazaki Kūkō Biru?) in Miyazaki, Miyazaki Prefecture, Japan. It previously had a headquarters in another facility in Miyazaki City. The headquarters later moved to the SNA Center (SNAセンター SNA Sentā) in the Again Building (アゲインビル Agein Biru) in Miyazaki.
