United Airlines announced plans for four new non-stop routes to Tokyo’s Haneda Airport late Friday.

Starting March 28, 2020, the airline will begin to offer service from Chicago, Los Angeles, New York, and Washington, D.C. to Haneda.  Through its partners, United will offer connecting service from Haneda to 65 destinations in Asia.

The move follows last week’s announcement by the U.S. Department of Transportation to award five slot pairs to Delta Air Lines, four to United, two to American Airlines, and one to Hawaiian Airlines.  It comes as airlines are preparing to offer flights to Tokyo for the 2020 Olympic Games.

United currently only offers one flight to Haneda, namely non-stop service from San Francisco International Airport.

The airline will operate the flights from Chicago O’Hare, the New York metropolitan area’s Newark Liberty International, and Washington, D.C.’s Dulles airports using Boeing 777-200ER aircraft. It will operate the Los Angeles-Haneda service using Boeing 787-10 Dreamliners.
