United Airlines has announced it will begin running services between four of its US hubs and Tokyo’s Haneda airport in 2020, replacing some of its existing Narita flights.

From 28 March, the airline will begin operating non-stop flights from Chicago, Los Angeles, New York/Newark and Washington DC to Haneda, which is located approximately 15 minutes from downtown Tokyo. United also serves Haneda with daily non-stop flights from San Francisco. The new services will provide extra capacity for passengers travelling to Japan for the 2020 Olympics.

The new Haneda flights from Chicago and Washington DC will replace existing services to Narita. However, United will continue to serve Narita from Denver, Guam, Honolulu, Houston, Los Angeles, New York/Newark and San Francisco.

United was one of three major US carriers planning to serve Haneda from 2020, including American Airlines and Delta Air Lines.

Patrick Quayle, United’s VP of international network, commented: “Our new service to Haneda gives our customers more choice and connections to more than 65 destinations throughout Asia. With service beginning next spring, we look forward to providing convenient service for the Olympic Games Tokyo 2020, and beyond. United has offered non-stop service between the US and Japan for more than 40 years and we are excited to expand our Japan network at Tokyo’s Haneda airport and continue to be the largest US carrier to Japan.”
