United Airlines will be adding two new connections from Tokyo, while boosting its flights from Guam to Japan going into the summer travel season.

In a release, United announced it will launch two new trans-Pacific flights connecting Tokyo-Haneda to both Los Angeles and Washington DC-Dulles from March 26.

From Osaka, United will increase the flights between Kansai Airport to San Francisco from thrice-weekly to daily effective April 24.

“Capacity increases in Japan benefit our customers throughout Asia-Pacific by providing more convenient flight options to connect. This will mean fewer stops to make and shorter travel times overall,” said Sam Shinohara, United's Managing Director of Airport Operations, Asia-Pacific.

Combined, United will increase its flight frequency to Japan – the airline's largest station in Asia – to a total of 10 daily flights which will provide customers 70 weekly trans-Pacific flights between Japan and North America.

United currently operates flights 10 routes between Japan and the US from three major airports – five from Tokyo-Haneda, four routes from Tokyo-Narita, and one from Osaka-Kansai.

Increase in Flights Between Guam and Japan

From March 26, United will significantly increase its flights between Guam and Japan to a total of 56 weekly flights weekly.

Between Guam and Tokyo-Narita, United will increase its flights from 18 to 25 flights per week and operate up to four daily flights to meet strong passenger demand starting April 9.

“The summer travel demand from Japan to Guam is looking promising right now, which is positive news for the island,” said Shinohara. “Looking back to the start of the pandemic levels when tourism came to a halt, we continued to fly our Guam routes with the commitment of supporting the local community as well as the return of tourism to the region. With the new summer schedule, we are another step closer to our goal of restoring a full Guam-Japan schedule.”

Shinohara added, “United will be celebrating 55 years as Guam’s hometown airline in 2023, and we understand how increasing capacity between Japan and Guam is vital to Guam’s tourism industry. I thank our Japan team for continuing to promote Guam as a top destination for Japanese travelers and our tourism stakeholders in Guam for working together for the benefit of the island.
