British Airways will move across to Tokyo Narita’s Terminal 2 at the end of this month, joining fellow Oneworld members JAL, AA, Cathay Pacific, Finnair and Qantas.
The carrier currently uses Terminal 1 at Narita, but will move operations to Terminal 2 on October 31. Premium passengers will benefit from access to JAL’s First Class and Sakura (business class) lounges within the terminal.
The end of October also signals a new era for Tokyo’s convenient Haneda airport, with Terminal 2 opening fully to scheduled international services. From October 31 JAL will offer flights to Bangkok, Beijing, Honolulu, Hong Kong, Paris CDG, San Francisco, Seoul Gimpo, Shanghai Hongqiao, Singapore and Taipei Songshan, while Cathay will serve Hong Kong twice-daily.
AA will launch daily flights from Haneda to New York in January 2011, and BA will commence services to Heathrow in February.
