YOKOTA AIR BASE, Japan — American military personnel in Japan will soon have more travel options when U.S. airlines add international routes this fall at Haneda airport near central Tokyo.

And the addition of a new shuttle route from Yokota Air Base, home of U.S. Forces Japan and the 5th Air Force in western Tokyo, will help them get there.

A recently announced U.S.-Japan air-service agreement is allowing four U.S. carriers — American, Delta, Hawaiian and United — to schedule daytime service at the airport where they were previously allowed to operate only at night.
