Emirates will start Dubai and Tokyo International Airport (Haneda Airport) daily flights

Dubai based Emirates will start daily, non-stop flights between Dubai and Tokyo International Airport (Haneda Airport) on 3rd June 2013. Emirates will operate a three-class Boeing 777-200LR on the route. The flight from Dubai to Tokyo, EK312, will depart Dubai at 0935hrs and arrive at Haneda Airport at 0001hrs the following day. The return flight, EK313, will depart at 0130hrs and arrive at Dubai International Airport at 0705hrs.

Haneda Airport, ranked as the second busiest airport in Asia, will be Emirate's 131st destination. The airport is also Emirate's third gateway in Japan. The airport is located in Ota-ku, Tokyo and handles the majority of domestic flights to and from Tokyo; it opened its doors to international carriers following the opening of the fourth runway and the international terminal in October 2010. Haneda, which will become Emirates’ 131st destination, is currently ranked as the second busiest airport in Asia.

“Emirates has been operating to Japan since 2002 when we introduced non-stop flights to Osaka; our commitment continued when we launched flights to Narita International Airport in 2010. We are confident that the demand in terms of both passengers and cargo is strong enough to warrant Emirates operating non-stop, daily flights to both of Tokyo’s airports, offering our passengers more flexibility on the route to Dubai and onwards to over 70 destinations in the Indian Ocean, Middle East, Africa and Europe,” added Mr Antinori.
