This expansion is fantastic for Tokyo. So far, there are no new destinations in the U.S. that the two Japanese airlines don’t already serve. However, with Narita slots opening up as many airlines are shifting to Haneda, that may change.

Do any of you plan to fly to Haneda with these new routes?

Previous Haneda Route Announcements From IFC:


That’s great news

Question: are the Additional new routes operates by ANA/JAL or other airlines

Never mind… It is opera tree d by ANA and JAL, very excited. I mean, no airline really operates Istanbul other than Turkish Airlines


Along with Delhi, Milan, Stockholm, Istanbul, Qingdao, and Shenzhen, the following routes have now been announced:

  • Haneda - Ho Chi Minh City
  • Haneda - Moscow (Domodedovo)
  • Narita - Vladivostok

Hanoi will also be switching from Haneda to Narita.

All routes are scheduled to begin 29 March 2020.


Looks like I’m going to back Tokyo next year then, perhaps 🥳

I think I might need to fix a few things. The press release has a few changes and I’ll need to update it later.

I see, but from the news I read this morning, it was nice to see the announcement of ANA starting the HMD-ARN route.

This route will be vital for business between the two nations. A highly requested route by many, happy to see it being established.

From what I read from the site you linked, and other various sources, I don’t think Japan Airlines will be increasing capacity to Narita or Haneda for 2020.

As far as I’m aware, they haven’t submitted any schedule changes for next summer and neither has ANA (which would be a new carrier). Thought there would be some special service for the Olympics but I think the current NRT-BOS flight capacity has plateaued – not enough to add capacity elsewhere. :/

Yup, that’s the thing I need to change. Article weeks ago didn’t get everything right. Realized that after the release today.

Few other things like ORD and JFK I’ll update soon.

Nice! Especially since I’m planning to make All Nippon VA. I applied and waiting for reservation

In addition to these new flights, Tokyo Haneda Airport is also testing new approaches to reduce congestion:


The new approach takes aircraft right next to the city, which would offer some amazing views of downtown Tokyo.

I know this is a little late but no

As of right now, only UA and JAL serve HND-SFO
If you look closely at that chart, SFO will receive new ANA service. The UA logo underneath SFO is what already exists

Why are you sad about this…HND is much closer to Tokyo than NRT. I would prefer HND or NRT as it is more convenient. I was really happy when ANA is switching SJC-NRT to SJC-HND! :D
