Delta Air Lines to expand at Tokyo Haneda and London Heathrow

Delta Air Lines (Atlanta) is preparing to expand service to two key international business airports – Haneda Airport in Tokyo and Heathrow Airport in London.

Delta begins nonstop service between Tokyo-Haneda and Detroit and Los Angeles on February 19, and will launch its new routes between Boston and Miami and London’s Heathrow Airport on March 26. The Heathrow-Miami route will be in direct competition with Oneworld partners American Airlines and British Airways.

Under multinational air service agreements, Delta has only been allowed to serve Heathrow since 2007 and is gaining access to Haneda this year. Delta is now the fastest-growing U.S. carrier to Heathrow, and with new Haneda flights, will become the largest U.S. carrier to both of Tokyo’s major airports – Haneda and Narita.

Delta is adding new nonstop flights between the three cities and Miami International Airport to enable convenient connections to Heathrow for customers across Florida. The intra-Florida flights will be operated by Delta Connection carriers Comair (Cincinnati) and Pinnacle Airlines (Memphis) using 50-seat Bombardier CRJ200 regional jets.
