Delta Air Lines will soon become the largest carrier at Tokyo’s Haneda airport, as they shift all their Tokyo flying from Narita over to Haneda next year. For those visiting Tokyo, Haneda is the closer airport of the two to the city center, which is why it’s becoming more preferred to fly into it over Narita.
For those looking to fly on Delta’s new A350-900, you’ll find them on flights between Detroit and Minneapolis to Tokyo-Haneda, well you can find Delta’s A300-900neo on Seattle- Tokyo Haneda.
Under a final decision announced by the U.S. Department of Transporation today, Delta will become the largest U.S. carrier serving Haneda, with seven daily flights between Haneda and Seattle, Detroit, Atlanta, Honolulu, Minneapolis, Los Angeles and Portland, Ore. With this change, Delta will transfer its full operation of U.S.-Tokyo services from Narita to Haneda, the city’s closest and most convenient airport, beginning in March 2020.
As part of its long-term Asia-Pacific network strategy, Delta will also adjust its network of flights beyond Narita. Effective March 2020, the carrier will suspend its NRT-MNL service and launch new daily ICN-MNL service operated by Delta. Serving Manila through Seoul will offer our customers superior connectivity via our industry-leading trans-Pacific hub in Seoul with our JV partner Korean Air.
While Delta will suspend Narita-Singapore service beginning Sept. 22, 2019, Delta customers can continue to reach Singapore – and more than 80 other destinations throughout Asia – through Seoul-Incheon via the airline’s partnership with Korean Air.
