DENVER (AP) -- Gov. Bill Ritter says Denver is in the running to get a daily nonstop flight to Tokyo.

Ritter and 39 officials returned Tuesday from a 10-day trade mission to Asia.

Ritter said All Nippon Airways plans to send a delegation to Colorado this spring as it decides which American city to expand to. If Denver is picked flights wouldn't begin until 2010.

Colorado State University signed four agreements with research institutions in China and Japan during the trip, but no major business deals were reached.

China is the third-largest market for Colorado exports. Japan is the fourth-largest after being surpassed by China in 2006.
