New York, May 16 (Jiji Press) — The U.S. Department of Transportation said Thursday it has tentatively decided to allocate four U.S. airlines 12 additional slots per day at Tokyo International Airport at Haneda.
The number of flights between Haneda and U.S. cities is set to increase ahead of the 2020 Summer Olympics and Paralympics in Tokyo.
Under the tentative plan, Delta Air Lines would receive five slots for flights linking Haneda to Seattle, Atlanta, Honolulu and two other cities. American Airlines would have two slots for routes to and from Dallas and Los Angeles.
United Airlines would get four, including for flights to and from Newark, near New York, and Chicago O’Hare. Hawaiian Airlines would get one extra Haneda slot for the Honolulu route.
The department will finalize the decision after receiving objections to it until May 30.
