Qatar Airways debuts service to Tokyo Haneda

Qatar Airways touched down at Tokyo Haneda International Airport for the first time on June 18, marking the airline’s third destination in Japan and 143rd globally. The inaugural flight also marked the first time that a Qatar Airways Boeing 787 Dreamliner has operated to a destination in Japan. 

“This new route will provide our passengers, both in Japan and throughout the rest of our network, with even more options and flexibility when travelling, whether it be for business or leisure,” said Qatar Airways Chief Executive Officer, His Excellency Mr. Akbar Al Baker.

The daily service to Tokyo Haneda International Airport joins the daily flights already in operation to Tokyo Narita International Airport, giving Qatar Airways passengers two dedicated flights into Japan’s largest city on a daily basis. 
Qatar Airways has been operating to the Land of the Rising Sun with routes to Osaka and Tokyo Narita since 2005 and 2010 respectively.

The new route, which is operated by an Boeing 787 Dreamliner, with 22 seats in Business Class and 232 in Economy, will bring the number of Qatar Airways’ flights to Japan up from 14 to 21 each week. With the new route, Qatar Airways will be serving travellers from the central area of Tokyo in addition to Tokyo Narita which currently services the population in the greater city area.

The Tokyo Haneda operation provides a non-stop link to Doha with excellent onward connections to more than 100 destinations, including popular spots in the Middle East, Europe and the Americas.
