All Nippon Airways (ANA) has announced that it will increase the number of flights between Los Angelas and Tokyo (Narita) starting October 29, 2017. 

Currently, ANA operates one flight a day between Los Angeles and Tokyo (Haneda), and one flight a day between Los Angeles and Tokyo (Narita). These added flights will allow ANA to expand the networks served by Haneda Airport, which functions as a transit hub linking international and domestic flights. 

The number of daily flights between Narita and Los Angeles will increase to two, responding to the strong demand for travel between the U.S. and Japan, as well as between the U.S. and Asian countries, the airline said. This route has seen consistent growth in its number of passengers, according to the company. As a result, ANA will be offering a total of three flights between Tokyo and Los Angeles, providing additional connectivity, and enhancing Narita's competitive strength as a transit hub between the Asian countries and North America.

Earlier this year, ANA celebrated its inaugural service from Mexico City to Tokyo.

Ticket sales for the additional flights are set to begin on July 3, 2017.
