Singapore Airlines to begin twice-daily flights to Haneda airport


Singapore Airlines is to launch twice-daily flights between Singapore and Tokyo Haneda airport in October 2010, complementing the current twice-daily Tokyo Narita services, one of which continues on to Los Angeles.

The airline has been awarded the permit for 14 weekly flights to Haneda by Singapore’s Air Traffic Rights Committee (ATRC).

Narita has been the main international airport serving Tokyo since 1978, but new international services will be permitted to and from Haneda after a fourth runway there opens for operations next year.

Flights to both airports will provide SIA’s customers with a choice of airport in Tokyo to suit their preference and convenience. Narita offers good connectivity with other international flights and accessibility by rail and road to other cities and prefectures outside the Tokyo metro area. On the other hand, Haneda has more domestic flight connections and is nearer Tokyo’s business districts.

The new flights will cater for growth in demand and boost travel between Singapore and Japan for both business and tourism.

In addition to Tokyo, SIA presently serves three other Japanese cities, namely Fukuoka (five times per week), Nagoya (daily) and Osaka (daily).

The airline also has extensive code share ties with Star Alliance partner All Nippon Airways on domestic sectors in Japan, as well as international flights between and beyond Japan and Singapore.

Looks like I will be fling Singapore Air. United is cheaper, with terrible service, ANA is more expensive (about the same as Singapore air) but to have access to Hanada... who cares. you save 2 hours each way using Hanada. Thanks!
