(FORT WORTH, Texas) -- American Airlines is imposing a partial no-fly zone over Japan.
Beginning April 6, the carrier will cancel two of its daily flights from the U.S. to Tokyo because of the uncertainty that still exists in Japan due to the March 11 earthquake and tsunami there. American won't resume these trips until April 26 at the earliest.
Since the natural disasters in Japan and the resulting crisis at the Fukushima Daiichi nuclear power plant, consumer demand for flights to Tokyo have fallen off considerably.
The affected flights are one from Dallas-Fort Worth to Tokyo's Narita International Airport and another that originates from New York's JFK Airport to Haneda Airport in Tokyo.
AMR Corp., American's parent company, said that two other flights emanating from New York and Dallas to Tokyo will continue.
