Nippon Cargo to start cargo flights to DFW on November 5

Nippon Cargo Airlines will start new cargo service at Dallas/Fort Worth Airport on November 5, the airport said on Friday.

The cargo service will be the first direct freighter connection between DFW and Japan. The flights will be twice a week.

"Opening more routes between Texas and Asia provides an excellent opportunity for regional businesses to ship goods quickly," said DFW Airport chief executive Jeff Fegan.

Nippon Cargo will operate the route from Narita, Japan, to Chicago O'Hare and then to DFW. The return route will fly from DFW to Anchorage, Alaska and then to Narita. The carrier said it will use a Boeing 747-400 on the route and eventually will use a Boeing 747-800 for the cargo service.
