Narita, Chiba Pref., Aug. 19 (Jiji Press)–United Airlines said Monday that it will open passenger flight routes connecting Tokyo International Airport at Haneda with the four U.S. airports of Chicago, Los Angeles, Newark and Washington in late March 2020.
The U.S. airline recently received additional takeoff and departure slots at Haneda.
With the new routes, United Airlines will be operating five services between Haneda and the United States. Currently, it offers flights between Haneda and San Francisco.
Meanwhile, the company will end its services connecting Narita International Airport, east of Tokyo, with Chicago and Washington.
But Narita will remain a hub for United Airlines with routes to the seven U.S. destinations of Denver, Guam, Honolulu, Houston, Los Angeles, Newark and San Francisco.
With the new services, flights to and from Los Angeles and Newark will be available at both Haneda and Narita.
Recently, Delta Air Lines announced plans to transfer all of its U.S.-Tokyo flights from Narita to Haneda and shift its Asia hub to Incheon International Airport in South Korea.
