The skies will be seeing a lot more of one of Japan’s airlines, as ANA increases weekly flights from Frankfurt to Haneda International Airport (HND), according to its latest flight schedule. This news comes as an update from the airline which has faced cancellations and delays previously, as a result of Japan’s COVID policies and the invasion of Ukraine by Russia.
ANA increases weekly flights from Frankfurt to Tokyo
This year has seen a lot of cancellations and delays as Japan’s travel restrictions have meant stricter border control and a limited amount of travellers being allowed entry into the country. However, following the government’s recent policy allowing vaccinated passengers to enter without showing a negative PCR test, Japan’s daily entry capacity has been increased to 50,000 – more than double the amount of passengers allowed compared to their previous capacity of 20,000.
In light of this news, ANA is looking to improve their Frankfurt – Tokyo route by increasing its frequency to fourteen round-trips per week. Starting October 30th, travellers from Germany’s popular city will be able to board flights NH224/223 or NH204/203 that operate flights to Tokyo any day of the week.
Tokyo to welcome more tourists as travel restrictions ease
ANA are also set to introduce new routes to places such as Milan, Stockholm and Istanbul. With the launch dates of the new routes yet to be announced, the future is looking promising for the Japanese airline.
These optimistic plans are subject to change, however, as the climate of Russia’s invasion of Ukraine and the impact of COVID protocols can majorly impact flight schedules. Passengers aiming to fly with ANA are strongly advised to check the status of their flights beforehand, and you can do so here.
