The daily, non-stop flights will be commencing from June 3, 2013. Haneda Airport is the 131st destination served by the airline, and a three-class Boeing 777-200LR will operate the service
Thierry Antinori, Emirates executive vice president for passenger sales worldwide, said, ‘As Emirates’ third gateway in Japan, the Dubai to Haneda route will help to build on the vibrant relationship between the United Arab Emirates and Japan, in terms of trade and increasing the opportunities for business and tourism.
Emirates has been operating to Japan since 2002 when we introduced non-stop flights to Osaka; our commitment continued when we launched flights to Narita International Airport in 2010.
We are confident that the demand in terms of both passengers and cargo is strong enough to warrant Emirates operating non-stop, daily flights to both of Tokyo’s airports, offering our passengers more flexibility on the route to Dubai and onwards to over 70 destinations in the Indian Ocean, Middle East, Africa and Europe.’
The airline had previously announced another new service, this time to Poland, commencing from February 6, 2013. The airline is offering a daily service to Warsaw in Poland, from Dubai in the UAE, with a 237 seat Airbus A330-200 aircraft.
The airline is currently offering five flights daily for its passengers from London Heathrow Airport in the UK to Dubai, as well as two flights daily to Dubai from Glasgow Airport in Scotland. The airline also offers direct to Dubai flights from Birmingham, London Gatwick, Manchester and Newcastle airports in the UK.
