United Airlines has announced plans to begin daily flights between Guam and Tokyo Haneda with its Boeing 737-800s

United Airlines has announced plans to begin nonstop flights between Guam and Tokyo Haneda, with the service expected to operate daily.

The airline has said that flights will commence from May 1, 2024, and operate year-round with plans to enhance connectivity between Guam and the city centre of Tokyo.

Haneda is optimally positioned close to the city centre and, as a result, proves to be an efficient option for passengers seeking easier travel to some of the leading accommodation points.

Service to Tokyo isn’t new, however, from Guam, with the addition of this service building upon the already existing 32 weekly flights between the location and Tokyo Narita. Adding Haneda is seen as the next best step.

A Strong Commitment

For United Airlines, a strong presence in Guam is seen as essential, with the company being the largest of any present. United offers upwards of 87 weekly flights across 14 destinations, and with a presence for more than 55 years, they’re looking to continue growing that.

United highlights its service towards Osaka, Nagoya and Fukuoka as it’s the only airline flying to these cities from Guam, alongside other key Islands nearby.

The major U.S. airline is lucky to have one of the largest global fleets, which means it can deploy aircraft to markets where other airlines cannot.

United’s New Flight Details

A Boeing 737-800 will be operated on this route with capacity for a total of 166 customers, and this includes 16 business class seats for those wishing for a more premium experience.

Departure from Guam will take place at 1900, with an arrival into Haneda at 2200 on the same day. Departure from Haneda will take place at 2355, with arrival the following morning back in Guam at 0445.

Comments From Executives

As we grow our global network, we’re always looking for opportunities to give our customers more choice and strengthen links between countries. This route – connecting Tokyo’s most convenient airport with our unique Guam hub – accomplishes just that. I appreciate the support of the Department of Transportation in recognizing the importance of this route to our customers and stakeholders.

Patrick Quayle, United’s Senior Vice President of Global Network Planning and Alliances.
