Delta’s new flights to Tokyo’s Haneda Airport from US cities such as Seattle, Detroit, Atlanta, Honolulu, and Portland (Oregon) are now on sale and the carrier is planning on opening a Delta Sky Club at the Tokyo airport in summer 2020.
Delta passengers can now book travel to Tokyo’s Haneda Airport from five additional US cities for flights beginning from March 28, 2020.
The US airline announced earlier this month that it will transfer full operation of US-Tokyo services from Narita to Haneda Airport in March next year. Currently, Delta operates seven daily flights between the two airports in Tokyo and Atlanta, Detroit, Honolulu, Los Angeles, Minneapolis/St. Paul, Portland (Oregon) and Seattle. Flights from Los Angeles and Minneapolis/St. Paul arrive at Haneda Airport, while the remaining flights land at Narita Airport.

The flights will also offer the Delta Premium Select cabin which has up to 38 inches of pitch, seat width of 18.5 inches, up to seven inches of recline, and adjustable leg and head rests.
In November, Delta says it will launch a bistro-style international “Main Cabin experience” featuring welcome cocktails, hot-towel service and mix-and-match options for premium appetisers and larger entrees.
