Finnair has announced it will be bringing new services to Tokyo this week with the launch of two new flights to the Japanese capital city’s Haneda Airport.
Available to buy now, the extra daily flights to Haneda Airport open up more access to Tokyo and is just ten miles from the sprawling city centre, compared to Narita which is 40 miles away. Both airports are popular with business and leisure travellers alike.
Ole Orvér, Finnair Chief Commercial Officer said: “Finnair has operated for over 35 years between Japan and Finland. With the new flights, we are happy to offer even better connections between Tokyo and over 100 destinations in Europe. Our strong commitment to Narita Airport ensures Finnair will continue offering flights to both main airports in Tokyo and increasing choice for our customers.”
The new flights from Haneda will be codeshare flights with Finnair´s long-term partner and fellow oneworld airline Japan Airlines, which has a wide network of connecting flights from Haneda onwards to other destinations in Japan.
While exact times for the new service are subject to airport slot availability, Finnair is planning to launch the route on March 20, at the start of the 2020 summer season.
Finnair currently flies to four destinations in Japan – Tokyo Narita, Osaka, Nagoya and Fukuoka. The airline’s fifth (seasonal) destination to the hugely popular world-famous ski resort of Sapporo, is set to launch on 15 December, 2019. This will ensure Finnair continues to offer more routes to Japan than any other European airline.
Finnair flies up to seven times daily from London Heathrow to Helsinki, double daily from Manchester, six times a week from Edinburgh and nine times a week from Dublin.
