Delta to start Nagoya-Honolulu flights

Delta Air Lines (Atlanta) will begin new daily service between Nagoya, Japan, and Honolulu on December 22, subject to government approval. The flight will be operated with 216-seat Boeing 767-300 ER aircraft, with 35 BusinessElite seats and 181 seats in Economy.

Delta currently operates flights from Nagoya (Centrair) to Detroit, Guam, Saipan and Manila.

The airline also has filed an application with the U.S. Department of Transportation (DOT) requesting permission to start new nonstop service between its Tokyo (Narita) hub and the Pacific island of Palau. The proposed flights would operate four-times weekly beginning in December 2010 and would be the only scheduled nonstop service between Japan and Palau.
