United plans to launch daily nonstop flights between Guam and Tokyo Haneda starting on May 1, 2024. This new route joins the carrier’s current 32 flights per week from Guam to Tokyo Narita.

The service will be operated by a 737-800 aircraft with 166 seats. Currently, the flight is scheduled to depart Guam at 7 p.m. local time and arrive at Haneda at 10 p.m. on the same day. On the return segment, the flight will depart Haneda at 11:55 p.m. and arrive in Guam at 4:45 a.m. the following day.

With more than 87 weekly flights to 14 destinations, United is the largest carrier operating in Guam. The airline currently serves Osaka, Fukuoka, and Nagoya from Guam along with islands in the Federated States of Micronesia, Marshall Islands, and Palau among other routes.

“As we grow our global network, we’re always looking for opportunities to give our customers more choice and strengthen links between countries. This route – connecting Tokyo’s most convenient airport with our unique Guam hub – accomplishes just that. I appreciate the support of the Department of Transportation in recognizing the importance of this route to our customers and stakeholders,” said Patrick Quayle, United’s Senior Vice President of Global Network Planning and Alliances, in a press release on Friday.

The new flights are scheduled to operate year-round and are subject to government approval.
