International traffic drives Japan's aviation growth

TOKYO'S Haneda Airport opens a new international terminal and runway today, sparking off competition with Narita Airport, and in the process, opening up new slots, according to ANA's executive vice president Keisuke Okada.

Okada noted that Narita Airport's longer main runway and non-stop longhaul services would most likely continue, while Haneda's new 2,500m runway is better placed to jump-start regional services.

He also disclosed that more foreigners were now travelling on domestic services and service delivery on board ANA's domestic flights were being tweaked to cater to the demand.

An open-sky agreement between Japan and the USA, together with anti-trust immunity for codeshare flights with airline alliances, would strengthen ANA's expectation of a return to profitability in 2010, and according to Okada, future growth would be underpinned by growth in international operations.

ANA now operates 236 international flights per week (201 from Narita and 35 from Haneda), with an expected 364 flights by 2011 (266 from Narita and 98 from Haneda).
