All Nippon Airways (ANA) has announced it will be resuming its Tokyo Haneda to London Heathrow route from 1st June.
The airline will operate three round-trips per week on a Wednesday, Friday and Sunday to accommodate demand for flights between Japan and Europe. British Airways last month announced it would not be resuming its Heathrow – Tokyo service until at least September.
The route will be operated by a B777-300ER with westbound flights shortened by 60-90 minutes by flying over the northern polar route (subject to season and weather conditions). Eastbound flights however will be operated over the central Asia route where the flight duration will remain the same as normal.
“With the recent easing of travel restrictions in Japan and other countries, there has been an increase in demand, mainly on North America and Asia routes.
“While flights from/to select European cities have been suspended since March, we have now adjusted our operations and will resume the Haneda-London route starting June.”
