United Airlines will launch daily nonstop flights between Guam and Tokyo Haneda International Airport on May 1.

Flights will operate year-round and create a more direct link between Guam and Japan’s capital, given the Haneda airport’s proximity to the city center.

These new flights build on United’s 32 weekly flights between Guam and Tokyo-Narita, and tickets will go on sale tonight.

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

United plans to operate a 737-800 on this route, which has room for 166 customers – including 16 business class seats.

The flight is scheduled to depart Guam at 19:00 local time and arrive at Haneda at 22:00 on the same day. On the return, the flight will depart Haneda at 23:55 and arrive in Guam at 04:45 the next day.
