Alliance expresses concern over possible elimination of PDX's direct flight to Asia

The Alliance signed on to a letter with Presidents of Oregon’s four major business associations to express concern over possible discussions between the U.S. Government and the Government of Japan that would result in the elimination of Oregon’s only direct flight to Asia.
The Alliance signed on to a letter with Presidents of Oregon’s four major business associations to express concern over possible discussions between the U.S. Government and the Government of Japan that would result in the elimination of Oregon’s only direct flight to Asia. The Government of Japan’s proposed changes would undermine Delta’s ability to maintain its hub at Narita International Airport. Direct access to Asia is critical for Oregon’s international trade activity, which is a cornerstone of the Oregon economy and supports one-quarter of the state’s manufacturing jobs. The Alliance is urging the Oregon Federal Delegation to push U.S. negotiators to insist that Japan provide enough slots to allow Delta to remain competitive in its efforts to operate U.S. to Tokyo flights.
