On June 12, 2015 ANA, Japan’s largest airline, began flying non-stop between Tokyo and Houston, the gateway to Central and South America. On July 22, 2015, ANA became the first foreign carrier granted acceptance into the U.S. Customs and Border Protection’s International-to-International Baggage-through Program (I-to-I Program) for connections to and from any United Airlines’ international routes at the George Bush Intercontinental Airport in Houston.
The I-to-I Program means greater convenience for ANA passengers transiting through Houston between Central/South America and Japan. For example, a passenger flying United Airlines from Mexico City to Tokyo via Houston can now connect to their ANA flight in Houston without having to re-check their luggage as previously required.
The George Bush Intercontinental Airport is a hub of ANA joint venture partner United Airlines, which has an extensive network of international routes in Central and South America.
ANA will launch the winter flight schedule (beginning October 25, 2015) for Houston that expands the number of Mexican code share routes with United Airlines of which passengers can connect in two hours*from two cities to seven; they are Mexico City, Leon, Cancun, Aguascalientes, Monterrey, Queretaro and Guadalajara. With the I-to-I Program and the new winter timetable, it will now be possible to connect between ANA and United flights even more smoothly.
