American Airlines is yet another U.S. carrier to ask the U.S. Department of Transportation for the ability to provide more routes from the U.S. to Tokyo’s Haneda Airport.

This comes following the U.S.’s recent agreement with Tokyo to open up Haneda airport with more routes to the U.S.

American Airlines is specifically looking to add more slots to Haneda from its hub in Dallas, Texas and Los Angeles International Airport in California.

“Our customers have repeatedly asked for convenient access to downtown Tokyo during the day,” said Andrew Nocella, American’s chief marketing officer in a statement. “American’s proposed service provides daytime access to Haneda from our West Coast gateway in Los Angeles and our largest and most centrally located hub in Dallas/Fort Worth – two regions with substantial and growing local and connecting traffic to Asia.”

American Airlines is looking to arrange a daily nonstop flight to Haneda from Dallas and back. Also, to Haneda from Los Angeles and back. This is according to a recent company press release.

The company said it’s also investing some $3 billion in plane upgrades, including Wi-Fi and inflight entertainment systems.
