Haneda to have limited-time daytime international charters.

The Japan Civil Aviation Bureau (JCAB) will reportedly allow nine slots at heavily-regulated Tokyo/Haneda (HND/RJTT) for international charter flights during its 0600 - 2300 daytime hours for a limited period from March 30th to October 25th.

March 30th will see Haneda's daytime international landing and takeoff slots increase by 30,000 per year, or 40 flights a day, and will accommodate long-range flights during these hours for the first time since Tokyo/Narita (NRT/RJAA) opened in 1978. 31 slots have already been allocated for services to and from Canada, China, France, Germany, Indonesia, Philippines, Singapore, Thailand, U.K., and Vietnam. The remaining nine slots are for U.S. flights, however, the authorities of Japan and the U.S. have so far been unable to reach an agreement regarding which side gets how many. The JCAB has decided to offer these yet-to-be-distributed slots for charter operations.

Airlines will be able to apply for these charter slots from February.
