Air routes & Flights

Haneda Airport is connected with the major and regional cities in Japan. It handles approx. 490 direct flights every day to 49 airports from Hokkaido to Okinawa. The number of passengers arriving at and departing from Haneda exceeds 60 million annually, and 60% of domestic travelers use Haneda. Thus it functions as an important hub for domestic air transportation in Japan.

Haneda has resumed regular international flights to Europe, North America, Middle East and Asia. It is currently connected with three cities in three European countries (France, the United Kingdom and Germany), five cites in the United States, one city in the United Arab Emirates and nine cities in eight countries and regions in Asia (Korea, Taiwan, China, Hong Kong, Thailand, Malaysia, Singapore and Indonesia), with a maximum of 56 flights per day.

Flights to nearby Asian countries are available mainly between 6 a.m. and 11 p.m. (daytime operation)

Flights from Haneda to European or U.S. cities operate in late evening or in the early morning (11 p.m.-6 a.m.). Passengers can leave Haneda late at night and arrive at the destination in the early morning, enabling them to use their travel time more efficiently.

Haneda Airport, which is open 24 hours/ 7 days a week and is conveniently located in Tokyo, is expected to further increase the number of slots to 447,000 from the 2014 summer flight schedules.



Expanding and upgrading aviation networks


Starting in the 2013 summer flight schedules, Haneda Airport has expanded the number of slots for domestic flights by 20,000 to 410,000 a year (370,000 slots in daytime hours and 40,000 in late evening and early morning hours). The additional slots were allocated to airlines after having been evaluated from perspectives of forming diverse networks of regional aviation and others, citing “Contribution to the formation and enhancement of nationwide aviation networks,” “Contribution to the formation and enhancement of air routes between Haneda Airport and regional airports” and other items.


It is expected to further increase the number of slots to 447,000 (including 90,000 for international flights) from the 2014 summer flight schedules. MLIT plans to expand and improve the international flight district to accommodate 90,000 international flights, to expand International Passenger Terminal Building and develop aprons and other facilities to accommodate 447,000 slots, and to stretch Runway C which is necessary for increasing the transport ability of long-haul international flights. Through these measures and with high-demand and business routes, such as long-haul Asian, European and U.S. flights, available during daytime hours, it is planned to accommodate the strong air transport demand in the Tokyo metropolitan area and to reinforce its domestic and international hub function by leveraging its rich domestic networks.
