British Airways will switch its daily flight from London Heathrow to Tokyo Narita airport to Tokyo Haneda airport from Saturday 28 March 2020.
Currently, BA flies to both Tokyo Haneda (Flights BA7 & BA8) and Tokyo Narita (Flights BA5 & BA6) daily. From Saturday 28 March 2020, it will fly to Tokyo Haneda twice daily.
Flights BA5 & BA6 will continue to be operated with a Boeing 787-9 aircraft and the flight timings are broadly the same with an afternoon departure from London Heathrow and Tokyo.
BA has cited better onward connections to its joint business partner Japan Airlines and local transportation links as a reason for the move.
As BA is continuing to serve Tokyo, it is not offering any refunds to affected passengers as a consequence of this move. However, some passengers with onward connections may need to rebook to meet minimum connection times.
Passengers can check the status of their booking using the Manage My Booking tool on ba.com and should contact BA or their travel agent.
Japan Airlines also flies from London Heathrow to Tokyo Haneda twice daily. As a consequence of this change, there will be no direct flights from London Heathrow to Tokyo Narita.
