American Airlines Gets Tentative Approval for New Tokyo Haneda Flights

The U.S. Department of Transportation (DOT) has tentatively granted authority to American Airlines to operate a daily flight between Tokyo Haneda (HND) and Dallas Fort Worth International Airport (DFW), as well as a second daily flight between Haneda and Los Angeles International Airport (LAX).

“We are encouraged by the DOT’s tentative decision and look forward to operating more flights into Tokyo Haneda and beyond with our joint business partner, Japan Airlines,” said American Airlines President Robert Isom. “We understand the unique opportunity we’ve been granted with new Haneda service from our largest hub at DFW and additional service from LAX, and will deliver a world-class customer experience when flights begin next year.”

A second daily LAX–HND flight will complement American’s existing LAX–HND service, which began in 2016. The new flight from DFW will provide Japanese customers convenient connections throughout American’s vast network with more than 900 daily flights to more than 200 destinations.

American’s new DFW–HND service would be operated with a Boeing 777-200, while its second LAX–HND service would be operated with a 787-8.

The final decision from the DOT is expected in the next few weeks.
