All Nippon Airways has announced that as from 1
December 2018, domestic passengers at Haneda Terminal 2 in Tokyo
will need to pass through the security check point at least 20
minutes before departure time.
last 12 years, the aviation industry has changed drastically and
Haneda Airport has expanded its terminals and welcomes an ever
increasing number of flights. The rate of on-time departures
has been impacted by this expansion and longer walk ways for
passengers to get to their flights, which is why
the security cut-off time is being adjusted by five minutes, moving from the
previously required 15 minutes to the new 20 minutes.
ANA customers who use the “ANA SKiP Service”
must also comply with this five-minute time change.
“We highly appreciate
the cooperation and understanding of our valued customers,” said
Shigeru Hattori, Senior Vice President, ANA Airport Center. “As
Haneda Airport grows, we aim to create the best possible
experience for travelers by adapting to that growth.”
Japan is expecting a surge in visitor arrivals
over the next two years as the country will host the Rugby World Cup in 2019
followed by the Olympics in 2020.
