- Lufthansa has transferred its two Tokyo routes from Tokyo Narita to Tokyo Haneda (HND) on 30 March. The airline’s daily 747-400 service from Frankfurt (FRA), and daily A340-600 service from Munich (MUC), have both moved. Star Alliance partner All Nippon Airways already operates its twice-daily Tokyo-Frankfurt service from Haneda, as well as its daily Tokyo-Munich route. Both of these routes clock in at 9,380-kilometres. Japan Airlines continues to operate its Tokyo-Frankfurt route from Narita airport.
