Daily nonstop to Tokyo
From 30 March 2014 All Nippon Airways (ANA) will be flying nonstop to the Tokyo-Narita hub. With this new Japan nonstop service the airport is strengthening its hub functionality and extending the already existing long haul services to Asia. With the Star Alliance Partners Lufthansa, Swiss and Austrian Airlines all passengers are able to enjoy the best domestic and European connecting flights.
The new route will be beneficial for the region because there are more than 10,000 Japanese living in North Rhine-Westphalia, 6,500 of them in Düsseldorf alone. Traditionally there have been very close economic ties between the two economic areas. More than 500 Japanese companies have a base in North Rhine-Westphalia, 421 in Düsseldorf and the surrounding area alone, including world famous companies such as Fujifilm, Mazda, Toyota, Nissan, Toshiba, Canon, Sony, NEC and Yamaha.
