JIJI

Japan’s transport ministry said Wednesday it will allocate 24 of 50 daily spots to be added for international flights at Haneda Airport in March 2020 to services connecting Japan and the United States.

The 24 spots will be distributed evenly to Japanese and U.S. airlines.

The daily number of flights from Haneda Airport, also known as Tokyo International Airport, to the United States will be increased from the current 12 to 36.

The ministry plans shortly to make decisions on the remaining spots, after conducting negotiations with other countries.
