The JAL Group (JAL) today unveiled the schedule of its international flights at Haneda Airport from which it will inaugurate 7 daily flights to 6 international destinations - Paris, San Francisco, Honolulu, Bangkok, Taipei's Songshan airport and Singapore, from October 31, 2010. Reservation and ticket sales will begin tomorrow. *Note* Bookings and sales on JAL's overseas websites will be made available at a later date.
At present, JAL flies 5 times daily to 4 short-haul Asian cities from Haneda namely Seoul (Gimpo), Shanghai (Hongqiao), Beijing and Hong Kong. Counting the new international routes and an increase in 1 daily flight to Gimpo this autumn, JAL will be operating a total of 10 international routes with 13 daily flights.
"Haneda Airport is conveniently located in the heart of Tokyo and will be opened round-the-clock, greatly enhancing the convenience of travelers," said JAL President and Chief Operating Officer Masaru Onishi. "Furthermore, with JAL's extensive domestic operations at the hub, passengers can make smooth connections from our new international flights to many other destinations in Japan. We intend to fully utilize Haneda's strategic advantages for operations to Europe, America and Asia as we constantly seek to improve the traveling experience of our customers."
The late-night flights from Haneda to Europe, America and long-haul Asia will complement existing day-time services at Narita to these regions and greatly expand flight options to meet the demands of business travelers with convenient flight timings. The schedule at Haneda Airport - accessible from downtown Tokyo in 30 minutes by car or train, is also ideal for leisure travelers wanting to depart from Japan, bound for a resort destination at the end of a workday and who want to maximize the most of their time overseas with a late return back to Japan.
