United Airlines has announced that it will launch new daily, nonstop flights between Denver International Airport and Tokyo’s Narita International Airport, a new service that will begin on March 31, 2013.
"This is a major step forward in positioning Denver as an international tourism destination and gateway to Colorado and the Rocky Mountain West," said Richard Scharf, president & CEO of Visit Denver, the Convention & Visitors Bureau.
United also plans to launch a daily nonstop service linking Denver with the two new markets of Shreveport, La. and Grand Forks, N.D. United will also expand its existing summer-season flight offerings between Denver and Anchorage to year-round services.
Once-daily, nonstop service between Denver and Shreveport will begin Aug. 28, operated by United Express carrier ExpressJet. Nonstop service will operate twice-daily between Denver and Grand Forks beginning on Oct. 3, operated by SkyWest. Service between Denver and Anchorage, which launched May 1, will now operate year-round.
