Air Travel To Japan

There are excellent, if somewhat expensive, air connections between Japan and the US. Direct departures are available from most major American cities, including Detroit. Detroit Metro Airport is a hub for Northwest Airlines with daily flights to several cities in Japan, but numerous other airlines also have frequent departures, so shop around for the best price. Students may be eligible for student discounts, some of which may require the International Student ID Card. The card is available for purchase at the International Center, Council Travel, or directly from CIEE (Tel.: 800-COUNCIL; Web: www.ciee.org). Do not forget to sign up for the airline's frequent flyer miles -- you may be able to earn a free trip someplace else! (See the handout entitled "Cheap Air Fares" for more travel information.)
