The Upshot

Japan Airlines Tokyo Olympics JAL 2020 Aircraft Livery

Flag carrier Japan Airlines, an official sponsor of the 2020 Olympics, is adding flights along with its partners to Haneda Airport. Japan Airlines photo.

This is a big international expansion in capacity. Much of the new Haneda Airport service is replacing capacity to the further-from-Tokyo Narita, but for those actually visiting Tokyo (and not just in transit), the new flights will make travel much more convenient.
