American Airlines receives final approval from DOT to fly between New York JFK and Tokyo Haneda.
Founding member of oneworld alliance, American Airlines Inc (NYSE: AMR), announced yesterday that it has been awarded approval by the US Department of Transportation (DOT) to operate a daily service between New York's John F Kennedy International Airport (JFK) and Tokyo International Airport at Haneda.
The year-round, non-stop service is designed to compliment the two daily flights offered by the airline's oneworld partner, Japan Airlines (JAL), which would give oneworld the most daily non-stop US-Haneda flights of any aviation alliance.
American Airlines will serve the new route from 20 January 2011 with a Boeing 777 aircraft. The schedule is to be announced shortly.
