The battle over securing landing slots at Tokyo’s Haneda airport is intensifying even among overseas carriers.

 

American Airlines and Hawaiian Airlines on Jan. 5 submitted applications to the U.S. Department of Transportation for new Haneda-bound services.

 

The Department of Transportation currently allocates U.S. carriers four round-trip slots at Haneda which arrive or depart from late-night hours to the early morning based on the Japan-U.S. open skies agreement. United Airlines has been allocated one of the slots to operate a flight to San Francisco. Delta Air Lines has two slots for flights to Seattle and Los Angeles, and Hawaiian Airlines has one for service to Honolulu.

 

Delta temporarily suspended its Seattle-bound service in October, which has prompted American and Hawaiian to apply for new services to Los Angeles and Kona in Hawaii, respectively. They have argued that Delta is not making full use of its landing slots at Haneda.
