Intimidated by Sapporo Airfare prices

Hi. I'm travelling to Sapporo on March 30th from Osaka. As such, I can't possibly get rates for travel that far off. Are they expensive that time of the year? Do I have better price options if the lfights originate from Kobe instead?

The winter timetables haven't been loaded (I think Jetstar does it October, JAL may be later). Fares will be from around Y5,000 for LCC.

Are any of the LCCs better than the other? Is there a leader or a lagger amongst them?

Air passes are offered by both ANA (Star Alliance) and Japan Airlines (Oneworld). To purchase such products, you need to contact a travel agent.

The cheapest air pass product - ANA "Experience Japan Fare" can only be purchased online on their website. It cannot be purchased from any travel agent, or even ANA by phone. Other air pass products by ANA and JAL, you need to contact the respective airlines, or a travel agent.

One more advantage of these air pass products: refundable

Too early for domestic bookings.

Would March travel be costlier (or cheaper)?
