Sometimes it’s hard to stay on top of all the new route announcements that come our way, so we’ve complied a little bit of a rundown below. As long as you can afford the fares, this should definitely help add to your passport stamp collection.

· Air Canada:
Airlines seem to be pretty eager to land even closer to Tokyo, as this year has brought several new flights into the city’s Haneda Airport. Now Air Canada is getting access to the more convenient airport, as they’re beginning service from Vancouver to Tokyo-Haneda. It will be once a day starting at the end of January, and the flights will go with Boeing 767-300ER jets. A quick look at our guide to in-flight entertainment reveals that the odds for a little seatback television is pretty good, so you won’t get too bored on this long-haul trip.

· US Airways:
If you’re looking to escape the Big Apple with the goal of visiting the country’s most popular national park, US Airways is now here to help you out. They’re starting up twice daily nonstop service from Asheville, North Carolina to New York-LaGuardia Airport, so you can visit Biltmore and Great Smoky Mountains National Park without a connection. Sure it’s not the most exciting global destination, but the Blue Ridge Parkway in the fall is a great alternative to aimlessly driving your Zipcar around New England.
