Delta Air Lines has launched new service between Seattle-Tacoma International Airport and Haneda Airport in Tokyo. Prior to the inaugural flight, Seattle was the largest West Coast city without nonstop service to Haneda, which is the preferred Tokyo airport for many business travelers due to its proximity to the city’s central business district.
“Delta’s Tokyo-Haneda flight and expanded Seattle service will significantly benefit regional customers by opening new doors for commerce with Asia,” said Bob Cortelyou, Delta’s senior vice president of network planning. “Our commitment to investing in onboard products and airport facilities, while growing service to markets in Asia and Europe, positions Delta as Seattle’s premier international airline.” www.delta.com
