Delta is anticipating Japan’s easing travel restrictions and will resume its flights from Los Angeles International Airport (LAX) to Tokyo International Airport (HND) on Oct. 30, 2022.
The route will start operating three times weekly before moving to daily starting Dec. 1. The restart of service will use Airbus 330-900neo aircraft featuring Delta One Suites, Delta Premium Select, Delta Comfort+ and Main Cabin services.
The airline will also start a new daily service between Honolulu and Haneda on Dec. 1. This is the first time it has offered service from Haneda to Honolulu with its start delayed due to the pandemic.
Haneda is a key hub for the airline and offers multiple travel options from key U.S. gateways including Seattle, Atlanta and Detroit.
“As travel restrictions gradually ease in Japan, we decided to restart the service from Los Angeles and Honolulu and increase the frequency of the flights currently operating flights to Haneda,” said Victor Osumi, Delta’s managing director – Japan, in a press statement. “Our commitment to the health and safety of everyone on board always comes first, and customers will enjoy more options to Haneda, with Delta’s unparalleled travel experience on the ground and in the air.”
Of note for international travelers, the airline recently opened a new Delta Sky Club at Hanedaon July 29.
The airline and Los Angeles World Airports are jointly investing $2.3 billion at LAX to build a brand-new, state-of-the-art, upgraded, next-gen customer experience. The two parties recently opened a new headhouse and the 30,000 square-foot of Delta Sky Club at Terminal 3.
When the Delta Sky Way at LAX project is complete in 2023, Terminals 2 and 3 will be a consolidated 1.2- million-square-foot, state-of-the-art, 27-gate complex, providing an easy-to-navigate customer journey as well as connecting Terminals 2 and 3 to the Tom Bradley International Terminal (Terminal B), enabling quick airside connections to the airline and partner-operated flights.
