MIA Continues Talking To All Nippon Airways About A Nonstop Flight To Tokyo

Miami International Airport is still pushing for the first nonstop flight to Asia.

This week, ANA Executive Vice President Toyoyuki Nagamine visited the airport and met with officials to discuss a potential nonstop passenger flight to Tokyo.

This is the second visit from representatives of ANA this year.

ANA owns Miami-based Pan Am International Flight Academy, which they purchased in 2013 for $140 million.

Why ANA? Why not Japan Airlines? JAL is part on OneWorld. It makes sense for JAL but not so much for ANA.

Regardless, I hope one of them comes to MIA in the new future.

This has been the question of the decade. All three airlines (if you include American) have the aircraft that can make this possible – yet it still hasn’t happened. I think ANA, though not in OneWorld, may have the best chance in actually pulling through. I think American has been hesitant bc they rather feed traffic through DFW, though DFW will never come close to all the feed there is at MIA. JAL is probably the least likely of the three I think… but you never know.

You are incorrect about AA funneling from JFK. AA has two flights to Tokyo per day from DFW, two each day from LAX (one to NRT and one to HND), and one from ORD, and they all go out full almost every day. AA is also building its DFW and LAX hubs as connecting hubs from Asia to S. America. (It just beat out Delta for LAX-PEK). If it wanted to fly MIA-NRT it would.

JAL isn’t financially stable at the moment. ANA looks promising for direct Tokyo flights.

AA needs to pay more attention to Miami, I don’t think I’ve ever seen any ads from AA for new MIA flights. #giveMIAaflighttoAsia
