Star Alliance member United Airlines will launch daily nonstop flights between Guam and Tokyo Haneda International Airport starting 1 May 2024.

Flights will operate year-round and create a more direct link between Guam and Japan’s capital, given the Haneda airport’s proximity to the city center.

These new flights build on United’s 32 weekly flights between Guam and Tokyo-Narita.

United plans to operate a Boeing 737-800 on this route, which has room for 166 passengers – including 16 business class recliners.

The flight is scheduled to depart Guam at 1900 local time and arrive at Haneda at 2200 on the same day. On the redeye return, the flight will depart Haneda at 2355 and arrive in Guam at 0445 the following day.

“As we grow our global network, we’re always looking for opportunities to give our customers more choice and strengthen links between countries. This route – connecting Tokyo’s most convenient airport with our unique Guam hub – accomplishes just that. I appreciate the support of the Department of Transportation in recognizing the importance of this route to our customers and stakeholders,” said Patrick Quayle, United’s Senior Vice President of Global Network Planning and Alliances.

United is the largest airline in Guam, offering more than 87 weekly flights to 14 destinations.

United has operated in Guam for more than 55 years and is the only airline today flying between Guam and Osaka, Fukuoka and Nagoya in Japan, as well as islands in the Federated States of Micronesia, Marshall Islands and Palau.

With this addition, United will operate six daily flights from Haneda, with service to New York/Newark, Washington D.C., Chicago, Los Angeles, San Francisco, and now Guam.

United also operates 10 daily flights to Tokyo’s Narita airport, with service to New York/Newark, Houston, Denver, Los Angeles, San Francisco, Guam, and Saipan.
