Nippon Cargo Airlines-NCA (Tokyo) has announced it will launch new freighter flights connecting Tokyo’s Narita International Airport and DFW International Airport, starting November 5. Nippon Cargo’s twice weekly flights will be the first direct freighter connections for the Dallas/Fort Worth area into Japan, and will bolster DFW cargo lift capacity to Asia while also providing a new connection to a strategically important destination.
Nippon Cargo Airlines will operate the route from Tokyo Narita to Chicago O’Hare, then to DFW Airport, Anchorage, Alaska, and then back to Narita. Nippon Cargo Airlines will fly 747-400 aircraft on the route, and the carrier ultimately plans to phase-in 747-8′s, the most fuel-efficient planes in the industry.
