Currently, United offers daily nonstop service between San Francisco and Haneda, which is located approximately 15 minutes from downtown Tokyo. Tickets for the new flights to Japan will be available for purchase starting Saturday, August 17.

“Our new service to Haneda gives our customers more choice and connections to more than 65 destinations throughout Asia,” United vice president Patrick Quayle said in a statement. “With service beginning next spring, we look forward to providing convenient service for the Olympic Games Tokyo 2020, and beyond.”

“United has offered nonstop service between the U.S. and Japan for more than 40 years and we are excited to expand our Japan network at Tokyo’s Haneda Airport and continue to be the largest U.S. carrier to Japan,” Quayle continued.

The carrier will also continue to utilize Tokyo’s Narita International Airport as a major hub for service from Japan to Denver, Guam, Honolulu, Houston, Los Angeles, New York/Newark and San Francisco.

With the start of the new routes t the Haneda airport, United will no longer serve Narita from its Chicago and Washington D.C. hubs, and will shift these flights from Narita to Haneda.
