Delta has started construction this week on its new Delta Sky Club set to open in early July at Tokyo’s Haneda Airport.
Located at the former TIAT Lounge Annex on the fifth floor of the airport’s International Terminal, the nearly 9,000-sqft Delta Sky Club is close to the gates from which Delta will operate its flights.
According to Delta, the Haneda Delta Sky Club will feature:
- International and Japanese seasonal food offerings that are rotated regularly, including a noodle bar
- A full-service bar along with seasonal cocktails and wine selected by Delta’s Master Sommelier Andrea Robinson
- Unique design elements and artwork throughout the Club reflecting local culture and history
- High-speed wifi, comfortable seating, and power outlets at nearly every seat
- Shower suites
Starting March 29 this year, Delta will transfer its US-Tokyo service from Narita Airport to Haneda Airport.
The US carrier now operates scheduled flights between Tokyo and seven destinations in the US, including Atlanta, Detroit, Los Angeles, Minneapolis/St. Paul, Portland, Seattle, and Honolulu.
Delta said the shift will make it the largest US carrier serving Tokyo’s closest and most convenient airport. It added that it will also be the only US carrier to operate a proprietary lounge at Haneda Airport.
Besides Delta, the other two major US carriers American Airlines and United will also add services from Haneda Airport from late March this year.
In other news, Delta, Virgin, Air France and KLM has recently launched a new transatlantic joint venture.
Starting March 29 this year, the US carrier will also move to Beijing’s new Daxing Airport.
