Haneda Airport v Narita Airport

東京の空港

Fierce competition has broken out between the two airports serving the Tokyo metropolitan area: Haneda Airport and Narita Airport.

For a long time Narita, further out to the west of Tokyo in Chiba Prefecture was considered Tokyo's main international airport, while Haneda (Tokyo Interntional Airport), much closer to central Tokyo in Tokyo Bay, was predominately a domestic hub.

Now things are changing. Haneda has opened a new 5-storey, 24-hour terminal extension and increased the number of its international and low cost flights to Asia and America with both scheduled and budget carriers to and from Tokyo.

Haneda now serves many international destinations with flights from JAL, ANA, Thai Airways, Eva Airways, Malaysian Airlines, Cathay Pacific, Delta, Hawaiian Airlines and American Airlines from its 4-runway airport.
Hanada can be accessed in as little as 13 minutes on Keihin Electric Express trains and Tokyo Monorail fm downtown Tokyo.

JTB travel agency is offering package tours to 22 overseas destinations from Haneda between October to January with connecting flights to Haneda costing only 1,000 yen per round trip.

  1. I agree about Haneda airport starts international air route. Haneda airport is opening 24 hours, no noise problem and very close central Tokyo. Very usability. I will also use next freight. And I think that shoould have come a lot of traveler into Japan. It should get to know them Japanese culture.
