Tokyo Haneda International Airport
Yesterday, we started a new series entitled “Battle for Tokyo Haneda Coveted Slots” (Follow link for Part 1 of the series).
As part of the bilateral agreement between US and Japan in 2010, the US Department of Transportation (DOT) was awarded 4 pairs of slots to US based airlines to operate into Tokyo Haneda International Airport (IATA Airport Code HND). Given its proximity to Downtown Tokyo, all major airlines including American Airlines (IATA Airline Code – AA), Continental Airlines and its subsidiary (CO), Delta Air Lines (DL), Hawaiian Airlines (HA) and United Airlines (UA) all applied for these coveted slots. Who will win?
