Air France intends to increase services to Tokyo by introducing a new daily flight operated with its own aircraft and crew to the downtown airport of Tokyo-Haneda as from summer 2014*.
Near the city centre, this new destination will make connections easier to other domestic airports in Japan with many domestic services on offer on departure from Tokyo-Haneda. Since 2010, Air France has been selling seats on a code-share basis on flights operated by Japan Airlines between Paris-CDG and Tokyo-Haneda.
This announcement follows the visit of Alexandre de Juniac, Chairman and CEO of Air France, to Tokyo on 28 November to celebrate 60 years of Air France presence in Japan.
“I am very pleased to be celebrating 60 years of uninterrupted Air France service to Japan. Today, we want to strengthen our services on this strategic market by providing excellent service to Tokyo and Osaka as well as the Japanese domestic network together with our partner Japan Airlines. In addition, we are striving to develop totally customer oriented Japanese routes," said Alexandre de Juniac.
