In response to an increase in demand for travel between Japan and Guam, United Airlines (UAL) is restoring four weekly flights between Guam and Nagoya from Dec. 2, 2018 through the end of March 2019.
United currently operates one daily flight between Guam and Nagoya, and with the addition of four-weekly flights, business and leisure travelers will have more opportunities to travel between the two cities with 11 weekly flights operated with Boeing 737 aircraft.
The additional four flights add more than 1,000 seats per week and over 16,000 seats between Guam and Japan to meet the increasing demand during the upcoming winter season as well as add convenient evening departure times in addition to the current morning departures.
This announcement follows United’s recent reintroduction of the Boeing 777-200 aircraft on two of three daily flights between Guam and Tokyo’s Narita International Airport beginning Oct. 28, 2018, through March 30, 2019, offering customers nearly 900 daily seats each way between Tokyo and Guam, an 80 percent increase in available seats.
“We are extremely pleased to offer our customers more opportunities to travel between Japan and Guam, and our additional four-times weekly service offers customers traveling from Nagoya more choice and convenient flight options to travel to Guam,” said Sam Shinohara, United’s managing director of Asia/Pacific Airport Operations, “Nagoya is one of the busiest airports connecting customers from Japan to Guam and these schedule enhancements are positive indicators for our island’s tourism industry and economy.”
United has also announced that it will operate eight extra flights, more than 2,000 seats, between Guam and Osaka, during November and December 2018 to meet the increasing demand. United currently operates one daily flight between Guam and Osaka, and the additional eight flights offer customers additional travel options including convenient evening departures from Guam and Osaka.
To help further meet the increasing demand for flights to Guam, United has increased flights for the 2018 summer peak season and will operate 20 additional flights from Aug. 2 through 27, including seven flights from Nagoya’s Chubu Centrair International Airport and 13 flights from Tokyo/Narita.
