It’s a great time to be an international travel based in Houston—the city just keeps getting new flights

Japan-based All Nippon Airways introduced a new route to IAH this month. The nonstop flight from Tokyo Narita Airport to Houston makes our city the airline’s tenth North American destination.

In a recent interview with the Associated Press, CEO Osamu Shinobe called Houston a hub city and said he believes the new service will help improve the airline’s access to Asia and Central and Latin America.

Asia is currently the fastest-growing region for international travel at IAH, which saw a record-breaking 9.8 million international travelers last year.
