Emirates has now restored its full Japanese network with the resumption of its passenger services to Tokyo’s downtown Haneda Airport on April 2, further building on the airline’s continued expansion in the Asia-Pacific region.
Operated by one of Emirates’ latest Boeing 777-300ER “Game Changer” aircraft, flight EK312 departed from Dubai on April 2 at 0750, and arrived in Haneda at 2235.
The return flight EK313 departed from Haneda on April 3 at 0005 and arrived in Dubai at 0620 local time.
Emirates’ latest 777-300ER cabins feature just six first class suites in a 1-1-1 layout, as well as 42 full-flat business class seats configured 2-3-2, and 306 standard economy seats in a 3-4-3 setup.
First class is definitely the highlight here. The ‘Game-Changing’ private first class suites feature floor-to-ceiling sliding doors and ultra-modern design features. Offering up to 40 square feet of personal space each, the spacious, the fully-enclosed are also equipped with virtual windows that display HD projection of the outside world.
In addition to Tokyo-Haneda, Emirates also operates daily services to Tokyo-Narita and Osaka.
From these points, the airline offers passengers access to 24 additional domestic cities in Japan through its codeshare partnership with Japan Airlines. Japanese travellers can also benefit seamless access to more than 130 destinations across six continents via Dubai.
“We’re very excited for the continued development of our Japanese network and are especially thankful to the local authorities and our partners for their support and for working with us on providing seamless global connectivity for Japanese travelers,” said Satish Sethi, Emirates’ country manager in Japan.
“We’ve been present in the market for more than 20 years and are thoroughly pleased to finally return to Tokyo-Haneda, as we look forward to supporting the increasing demand for international travel. The night flight from Haneda offers valuable connectivity for travellers to access Emirates’ points beyond Dubai, in Europe, Africa, and the Middle East regions,” Sethi added.
