British Airways new route to Haneda in Japan


British Airways has announced the launch of a new route to Haneda in Japan in a push to open up the domestic Japanese market to UK travellers.


Other highlights in announcement include new direct flights to Buenos Aires, rather than via Sao Paulo and an increase in services to the Caribbean.


The five-a-week service from Heathrow to Haneda will begin on February 19, 2011. The route will be served by a Boeing 777, with a four-class configuration enabling customers to choose from First, Club World (business class), World Traveller Plus (premium economy) or World Traveller (economy). Prices will start from £721.


As well as offering an excellent domestic network Haneda Airport is located near the business centre in Tokyo, which is ideal for premium customers.


The airline’s daily service to Tokyo’s Narita airport will continue.  The route is performing well and operating from two airports in Tokyo provides customers with greater flexibility.


The rest of the changes to the network will begin from March 27, 2011.


Buenos Aires and Sao Paulo will have their own daily direct flights. Currently the route stops first in Sao Paulo before going on to Argentina’s capital. 


Gatwick is reaping the benefits of the success of its longhaul leisure routes with increased flying from the airport.


Barbados will increase from 10 to 12 flights a week, Antigua will increase from five to six services a week and the St Lucia – Port of Spain service will increase to daily flights from five a week.


New route Cancun, only to be launched in November 2010, is increasing from two to three services for summer 2011.


Gatwick to Tampa is increasing from five to seven flights a week however, Orlando is decreasing from nine to seven flights a week.
