Kyoto to Get New Airlift from U.S., Canada
Kyoto will be getting new international flights from the US and Canada.
Japan Airlines recently announced its expansion plans include the addition of a non-stop daily flight between Los Angeles and Kansai International Airport, which will start in March 2015. And from May 2015, Air Canada will introduce a direct non-stop service between Vancouver and Kansai International Airport, offering five flights a week.
Kyoto Convention and Visitor Bureau’s international marketing co-ordinator James Widgren says the new flights will make the city more accessible for international delegates and bring more events to the region.
“The city of Kyoto is an attractive destination to organizations looking to hold international events because of its cultural heritage as well as its academic strength," he said in a statement.
“Infrastructure plays an important role when organizers choose a destination...Increasing the number of international delegates to Kyoto will have a positive economic benefit to the whole province.”
