Delta Airlines Flys to Japan

Delta Air Lines’ Customers to Benefit from New U.S.-Japan Air Services Agreement.

Delta Air Lines will make Asia even more accessible to travelers thanks to an agreement reached between the U.S. and the government of Japan.

Today’s agreement, makes important steps toward achieving a more liberalized air services framework between the two nations – steps that will benefit U.S. and Japanese airlines and better enable Delta and its U.S. SkyTeam partner airlines to compete in and beyond Japan.

This is the first time since 1998 that the U.S.-Japan agreement has been modified.

"Delta applauds the U.S. and Japanese governments for reaching an agreement that affords Delta and its U.S. SkyTeam partners the ability to offer greater choice of services to our customers flying between the United States and Japan and beyond to other Asian countries,” said Sametta Barnett, director for Government Affairs for Delta. “Under this new accord, Delta will now have greater flexibility to place its code and sell services operated by its partners and vice versa."

Delta offers nonstop flights from Hartsfield-Jackson Atlanta International Airport to Tokyo´s Narita airport and to Seoul´s Incheon airport.

"Delta looks forward for future bilateral aviation talks between the two countries that seek to further liberalize the agreement," Barnett added.
