Haneda's expanded International Terminal.

Tokyo International Airport (HND/RJTT), more commonly called Haneda Airport, opened its expanded International Terminal including a new satellite concourse on March 30th, coinciding with the allocating of 40 additional daily slots for international flights.

Total floor space grew from 159,000 square meters to 236,000 square meters, increasing the number of jet-bridge-equipped gates by eight to 18. Of the eight, six are equipped with gate lounges. Additionally, there are 15 remote parking spots. The departures hall in the main building has also been expanded with the addition of two check-in islands (48 positions), bringing the total to six islands (144 positions). 12 new shops and restaurants will be opened, totaling 123, while in late September, Royal Park Hotel will open a 313-room facility including 17 exclusively for transit passengers beyond passport control.

Of the 40 slots, the Japan Civil Aviation Bureau (JCAB) has allocated 31; Canada – 2 (Japanese airlines 1), China – 4 (2), France – 4 (2), Germany – 4 (2), Indonesia – 2 (1), Philippines – 2 (1), Singapore – 4 (2), Thailand – 3 (2), U.K. – 4 (2), and Vietnam – 2 (1). The remaining nine are for U.S. flights, however, the authorities of each country have been unable to reach an agreement as to which side gets how many. The four Chinese slots remain unused as of now due to rights issues on the China side. Of the 31 slots, 16 were handed out to Japanese airlines, of which 11 went to All Nippon Airways (NH/ANA) and only five went to Japan Airlines (JL/JAL) after a bitterly fought political tug-of-war.
