American Airlines will inaugurate service linking Tokyo’s Haneda International Airport with its hub at Dallas/Fort Worth International Airport next March.

The airline currently operates two flights from Dallas to Tokyo’s Narita International Airport, one flight from Los Angeles International Airport to Narita, and one from Los Angles to Haneda.

With the launch of the DFW-Haneda service, American and its joint-venture partner Japan Airlines will operate a total of five daily non-stop flights to Haneda from four cities, New York, San Francisco, Dallas, and Los Angeles. American will be the only U.S. carrier to serve Haneda from DFW.

The Haneda flights are particularly intended “for those who value access to fast and efficient public transportation,” said Vasu Raj, the airline’s vice president for scheduling.

In May, four carriers – American, Delta Air Lines, Hawaiian Airlines, and United Airlines – were assigned a total of 12 slot pairs at Haneda.

Slots for flights to Haneda Airport are considered highly desirable because of the airport’s proximity to downtown Tokyo, versus Tokyo’s other airport, Narita International Airport, which is outside the city.
