Boston Chamber hails new Boston-Tokyo nonstop flights
The Greater Boston Chamber of Commerce today hailed the launch of non-stop air service between Boston and Tokyo next year as an economic boost for the region, noting that it will not only help increase tourism here, but also build stronger connections to Japanese markets.
Japan Airlines will offer four flights between Logan and Narita International Airport beginning in April 2012.
"These flights will not only make it easier for tourists to travel between our two cities, but will bring wider economic benefits as well, enabling closer connections to markets, products, customers, family and friends that will benefit New England and Japan," said Paul Guzzi, the chamber's chief executive.
"The Japan Airways flights will fill an important need for the many travelers in our market, particularly those in our leading industries such as high tech, life sciences, health care and education," he added.
