Nippon Cargo Airlines has been making numerous management efforts to reduce fuel costs under the recent unlimited fuel price hike circumstances. NCA has realigned the below routes to sustain and strengthen its route operations.
1. Flights departing Narita (partly KIX) bound for Chicago and New York
NCA will suspend a call on New York with KZ166 scheduled to depart Narita on August 24 and KZ115 scheduled to depart New York on August 25.
Instead, NCA will increase direct flights between Narita and Chicago from five to seven a week.
2. Flights departing Narita bound for Beijing via Seoul(ICN)
During the Olympic Games in Beijing, NCA will suspend flights to Beijing from August 1 through 31 due to expected implications resulting from enforced traffic control around the Beijing area. Instead, NCA will shift the said service to Shanghai in same period.
Consequently, NCA will increase Seoul/Shanghai flight from two to four a week.
While these changes will impact some customers, the structure of their current fleet and the soaring fuel prices that far exceeded anticipation have forced this decision of suspending New York service.
