As of September 1, UAE national flag carrier Emirates has started providing complimentary bus services to its Economy Class passengers arriving at Tokyo Haneda Int’l Airport, and thus becomes the only airline to do so at Tokyo Haneda.
Tokyo Haneda services
Emirates is now the sole airline to provide complimentary bus services for arriving passengers at Tokyo Haneda Int’l Airport (HND), the airline has recently disclosed.
The services are available at Haneda’s Terminal 3 Charter Bus Parking Spot, where the buses are equipped with a three-letter IATA code, allowing passengers to seamlessly book their bus seats to their final stations.
“Bus number EK7034 departs from Haneda International Airport at 00:01hrs and arrive in Tokyo Station (TYQ) at 00:40hrs. Bus number EK7036 will depart from Haneda International Airport at 00:01hrs and arrive in Shinagawa Station (SGS) at 00:30hrs. All times are local.” Emirates explained.
The new complimentary service is set to offer convenient and efficient connectivity for Emirates’ passengers, making their way into central Tokyo in 40 minutes or less.
Overall, Emirates offers daily flights to both Tokyo Haneda Int’l Airport and Tokyo Narita Int’l Airport, though it remains to be seen if they are to offer the same for Narita at a later time, if they don’t already.
Route Restored This Year
Covered by AviationSource back in April of this year, Emirates had restored its full Japanese network with the resumption of its passenger services to Tokyo Haneda on 2 April 2023. The resumption of the Japanese service further marks the airline’s continued expansion in the Southeast Asia region.
Operated by one of Emirates’ latest Boeing 777 “Game Changer” aircraft, flight EK312 departed from Dubai on 2 April at 7:50hrs, and arrived at Tokyo Haneda Airport at 22:35hrs.
In addition to Tokyo-Haneda, Emirates also operates daily services to Tokyo-Narita and Osaka Kansai International Airport.
The airline remains committed to supporting the Japanese market and celebrated 20 milestone years of operations to Osaka – the country’ second largest metropolitan city after Tokyo.
Recent Emirates achievement: IATA Environmental Certifications
On September 3, AviationSource reported that Emirates has underscored its dedication to environmentally responsible practices by successfully attaining both the IATA Environmental Assessment (IEnvA) Stage One and the IEnvA Illegal Wildlife Trade module certifications.
The IEnvA certification system stands as a pinnacle in the realm of environmental management. Emirates has completed Stage One of this comprehensive system, encompassing critical aspects such as flight operations, corporate activities, and a module dedicated to curbing illegal wildlife trade.
This underscores the airline’s pledge to environmental sustainability, ensuring a lasting impact on wildlife preservation and habitat conservation.
Emirates’ Divisional Senior VP of International Affairs, Sheikh Majid Al Mualla, expressed immense pride in achieving the IEnvA Stage One certification. This accomplishment not only highlights Emirates’ commitment to impactful environmental initiatives but also signals their dedication to combatting the trafficking and exploitation of wildlife.
Marie Owens Thomsen, IATA’s Chief Economist and SVP of Sustainability, also extended congratulations to Emirates for attaining the IEnvA Stage One certification.
We look forward to working together with Emirates to achieve our common goal of reducing environmental impacts, fight against illegal wildlife trafficking and enhancing social responsibility,” Thomsen said.
