United Airlines adds new service to Tokyo Haneda Airport

United Airlines today announced it will begin service between four of its U.S. hubs and Tokyo’s Haneda International Airport, located approximately 15 minutes from downtown Tokyo. United will begin operating nonstop service between Chicago, Los AngelesNewark and Washington, D.C. and Tokyo Haneda on March 28, 2020, subject to government approval.

United currently offers daily nonstop service between San Francisco and Haneda. Tickets for United’s new Haneda flights will be available for purchase starting Saturday, August 17.

Google Maps: Haneda (HND) is closer to downtown Tokyo than Narita (NRT).

In addition to United’s new Haneda flights, Tokyo’s Narita International airport will continue to be a hub for United with nonstop daily service between Narita and Denver, Guam, Honolulu, Houston, Los Angeles, New York/Newark and San Francisco. With the start of these new routes, United will no longer serve Narita from its Chicago and Washington D.C.hubs, and will shift these flights from Narita to Haneda.
