Growing out Narita
Whilst a lot of the excitement out of Japan has been from Tokyo International Airport (or Haneda), the value of the big hub at Narita still offers can be useful for connecting passengers.
Also, it’s worth remembering that Haneda is slot constrained – with airlines fighting it out for slot allocations at the airport – setting up new routes out of its main hub of Narita is a lot easier in comparision.
The new routes go on sale from 14:00 on Wednesday, November 6, 2019 (Japan Time).
