LONDON – Emirates is to resume its services to Tokyo-Haneda starting from 2 April 2023. The Gulf carrier is building back its Japanese network and will operate the service with its latest Boeing 777 aircraft.
Japan has historically been a key region for the airlines trade and tourism network, and Emirates shows a long history of support for Japanese route services.
Operated by one of Emirates’ latest Boeing 777 “Game Changer” aircraft, flight EK312 will depart Dubai at 07:50hrs, and arrive in Haneda at 22:35hrs. The return flight EK313 will depart Haneda at 00:05hrs, and arrive in Dubai at 06:20hrs. All times are local.
Supporting post-pandemic travel to the region
The resumption underscores Emirates’ continued support to Japan’s post-pandemic travel and tourism revival, serving the surging demand for international travel and increasing inbound traffic from key markets across its global network.
Emirates’ return to Haneda will further boost the airline’s operations in the market, alongside its daily A380 service to Tokyo-Narita and a daily Boeing 777 service to Osaka.
Since the route’s launch in 2013, and until the pandemic hit, Haneda has always been one of the key points on Emirates’ network for trade and tourism.
The airline remains committed to supporting Japan’s accelerated growth and recovery and has recently celebrated 20 milestone years of operations to Osaka – the country’ second largest metropolitan city after Tokyo.
Emirates also offers passengers access to 26 additional domestic cities in Japan and 10 regional points via Tokyo and Osaka, through its codeshare partnership with Japan Airlines.
With the addition of Tokyo-Haneda, Emirates takes its global network up to 141 points across 6 continents, including 10 cargo-only destinations.
The ‘Game Changer’ Boeing 777
Emirates currently operates its latest Boeing 777-300ER aircraft fitted with its ‘Game Changer’ fully-enclosed First Class suites to Brussels, Geneva, Nice, London Stansted, Frankfurt and Zurich.
From First Class through to the Business and Economy Class cabins, the latest Emirates Boeing 777 aircraft features ergonomically designed seats, multi-million dollar upgrades and the latest version of the ice inflight entertainment system across all cabins.
Designed with an emphasis on exceptional customer comfort and ultimate privacy, Emirates ‘Game-Changing’ Boeing 777 private suites feature floor-to-ceiling sliding doors and ultra-modern design features against cool grey colourscapes.
Offering up to 40 square feet of personal space each, the spacious, fully-enclosed private suites are laid out in a 1-1-1 configuration, for a total of six suites.
Emirates Airbus A380 continues to operate the Tokyo-Narita services. Supporting the carrier’s long-haul operations in addition to the Boeing 777, the airline’s flagship Airbus A380 is also deployed to 40 destinations including London Heathrow, Auckland, Kuala Lumpur and Houston, among others.
