DOT tentatively approves new Delta service between Haneda and five U.S. cities
Delta would become the leading U.S. airline serving Tokyo’s preferred airport under a preliminary decision announced May 16 by the Department of Transportation, with new slot pairs for flights between Haneda Airport and Seattle, Detroit, Atlanta, Portland & Honolulu.
These new routes will provide more convenient access for customers and better position the carrier to compete with other airline partnerships such as Star Alliance with United & ANA serving Tokyo’s preferred airport. It will also enhance the ability of Delta and its partner Korean Air to provide comprehensive service and connecting options across the region.
The new routes would launch in the Summer 2020 flying season.
