Delta Air Lines Inc. has started two new flights between its Tokyo hub and popular vacation spots in the Pacific, bringing to 17 the number of destinations it serves in Asia.

On Dec. 22, the Atlanta-based airline began daily, nonstop service from Tokyo’s Narita Airport to Honolulu and flights four times per week to the island nation of Palau.

Delta already served the Hawaii capital and other island markets from Japan, but Palau, a popular scuba diving destination that draws 30,000 Japanese visitors per year, is a new addition.

“Our new service to Palau and expanded service to Honolulu underscore our commitment to providing more travel options to customers in Japan,” said Jeff Bernier, Delta’s managing director for Pacific sales and affairs.
