Haneda Airport (also known as Tokyo International Airport) is expanding international access to Tokyo. As of October 21, a brand-new fourth runway will open, allowing more international flights to land in Tokyo.
This new opening is the expansion of Haneda's capacity and function to long-haul international flights during low-traffic hours in early morning and late night. Plus, the airport is actually located within Tokyo, only 13 minutes by train to Tokyo's main Yamanote Line.
Thirteen international destinations connect to Haneda, including three U.S. carriers (American Airlines, Delta Air Lines and Hawaiian Airlines) and two Japanese (Japan Airlines and All Nippon Airways). This serve nonstop flights from San Francisco, Los Angeles, Detroit, Honolulu and New York JFK Airport.
