Yokota offers new shuttle to Haneda airport as US airlines add routes
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.
American and Delta plan flights to Los Angeles; Delta will fly a new route to Minneapolis/St. Paul; United will fly to San Francisco; and Hawaiian will fly to Honolulu while keeping a daily nighttime flight split between Honolulu and Kona, according to a U.S. Department of Transportation statement.
