Following Delta Air Lines to Grow Presence at Tokyo Haneda recent announcement where the airline plans to shift all their flying from Tokyo-Narita to Tokyo-Haneda, United Airlines also makes their own expansion at Tokyo-Haneda.
United Airlines will begin new service from Tokyo-Haneda to four of its U.S. hubs beginning March 28, 2020. We’ll see service being added to Chicago O’ Hare, Los Angeles, Newark, and Washington Dulles, which will complement the airline’s existing service already to San Francisco.
United Delta, United will still operate several routes to/from Tokyo-Narita.
In addition to United’s new Haneda flights, Tokyo’s Narita International airport will continue to be a hub for United with nonstop daily service between Narita and Denver, Guam, Honolulu, Houston, Los Angeles, New York/Newark and San Francisco. With the start of these new routes, United will no longer serve Narita from its Chicago and Washington D.C. hubs, and will shift these flights from Narita to Haneda.
“Our new service to Haneda gives our customers more choice and connections to more than 65 destinations throughout Asia. With service beginning next spring, we look forward to providing convenient service for the Olympic Games Tokyo 2020, and beyond,” said Patrick Quayle, United’s vice president of International Network. “United has offered nonstop service between the U.S. and Japan for more than 40 years and we are excited to expand our Japan network at Tokyo’s Haneda Airport and continue to be the largest U.S. carrier to Japan.”
This is great news as we’ll see new United service to the Tokyo as the airline is adding new routes, unlike Delta who is shifting service from Narita to Haneda.
