Japan Airlines returns to Dallas/Ft.Worth International

Japan Airlines said last week that it was returning to Dallas/Fort Worth International Airport with four flights per week to Tokyo Narita Airport, utilizing Boeing 787-8 Dreamliner aircraft on the route.

The new service to Tokyo will start on Nov. 30 operating out of DFW's International Terminal D. 

"We are honored to welcome back Japan Airlines to Dallas/Fort Worth International Airport, and are excited about the outstanding connectivity and customer service they will provide to passengers flying to Japan and throughout Asia," Sean Donohue, chief executive officer of DFW Airport, said.

The new flights will strengthen the trans-Pacific joint business partnership Japan Airlines enjoys with American Airlines.

"We are pleased to announce the return of Dallas/Fort Worth to our international network, which becomes our eighth gateway in North America and our fourth U.S. service launch in just over three years," Yoshiharu Ueki, president of Japan Airlines, said. "By making full use of the efficiencies of the Dreamliner as well as capitalizing on our even stronger relationship with American Airlines, we are confident this resumed service will provide even more valuable links for commercial and cultural exchanges for our customers in both regions and beyond."

The carrier also said it is considering going to daily service next spring.
