The United States Department of Transportation (USDOT or DOT) has tentatively awarded four U.S. carriers a total of 12 new daytime service slots to Haneda Airport in Tokyo.

 

 

 

Delta Air Lines was the biggest winner after being awarded five of six requested flights to Haneda from Atlanta, Detroit, Honolulu, Portland and Seattle. United added four destinations serving Haneda: Chicago O’Hare, Los Angeles, Newark and Washington Dulles.

 

 

 

This decision by DOT will encourage competition and provide more choice for customers travelling between the U.S. and Tokyo’s city centre.

 

 

 

Delta Executive Vice President Steve Sear said in a statement. “This service will allow Delta to combine its superior service, product and operational reliability with the convenience of Tokyo-Haneda’s central location—an important win for customers.”

 

 

 

 

American Airlines was awarded two slots and will host service between the Japanese capital and Dallas-Fort Worth and Los Angeles. The new flight to Los Angeles will be American’s second daily service between Haneda and LAX.

 

 

 

Hawaiian Airlines also received approval for an additional daily roundtrip flight to Haneda from Honolulu. The carrier would serve the route 12 times daily if the tentative agreement is cemented.

 

 

 

The carriers approved for the service stressed the new flights should be taking off in time for the 2020 Summer Olympics in Tokyo.
