BOSTON (AP) — Travelers heading to Japan from Boston will be able to make the flight without touching down along the way for the first time in history.

On Sunday, Japan Airlines launched nonstop service from Boston Logan International Airport to Tokyo’s Narita Airport using the new Boeing 787.

Officials held a ceremony at Logan on Sunday to mark the arrival of the first flight.

On Monday Gov. Deval Patrick will hold a separate celebration of the direct-route flight at a Statehouse event.
