NCA Plans to Resume Narita (NRT) ? New York (JFK) Route
Nippon Cargo Airlines (NCA, Headquartered in Minato-ku, Tokyo; President: Tadamasa Ishida) plans to resume flights to and from New York which was suspended in August last year. NCA will be the only airline to provide direct freighter services on the New York route, similarly to the resumption of the European routes from Chubu International Airport (NGO), which plan was recently announced.
(Details of the schedule will be announced after approval is received from the relevant authorities.)
NCA was forced to suspend the New York route in August last year due to skyrocketing fuel prices and a limited number of aircraft. Since then, NCA has received repeated requests from customers in both Japan and the United States to resume flights on the route. Despite positive factors in favor of resuming Tokyo-New York flights, including stability in fuel prices and a changed market environment, the international air cargo market remains extremely harsh.
Despite the severity of the conditions, NCA has taken the plunge and will resume the New York route in order to provide high-quality services and satisfy our customers’ needs. Operating with flexibility and mobility, we will respond positively to our customers’ requests.
NCA will continue pursuing “usability,” “high quality” and “variety of service” to meet customers’ needs and we aim to be a reliable partner making constant progress in cooperation with our customers.
