Tokyo's Haneda Airport (HND) will soon offer more flights to the United States from two of Japan's most popular carriers. The new options should all be operating before the 2020 Summer Olympics kick off in July. However, it's perfectly fine to take advantage of these routes for vacations or business trips even if you have no intention of catching the games.
A total of six new routes connecting Tokyo with the United States will be offered out of Haneda by Japan Airlines (JAL) starting on March 29 of next year. It has been confirmed that the new flights will serve Chicago, Dallas, New York, Los Angeles and Honolulu. In addition, JAL plans to add six more flights to and from Shanghai, Dalian, Moscow, Sydney, Delhi and Helsinki next spring.
All Nippon Airways (ANA) is also planning to add five new routes between Haneda and the United States next year. The cities that are being added are Houston, San Jose, Seattle, Washington DC, and San Francisco. ANA will also be increasing the frequency of its route to Los Angeles. Most of the new routes that are being added between Haneda and the United States were previously offered out of Tokyo's Narita Airport. The new routes will all begin on March 29 of 2020. However, keep in mind the launch for the San Francisco route isn't expected to happen until some point during the summer.
You don't have to wait until 2020 to scoop up tickets for ANA's new routes between the United States and Tokyo. Tickets for almost all of the new routes will be on sale during Thanksgiving week. However, tickets to San Francisco aren't expected to go on sale until the middle of December.
