The civil aviation authorities of Japan and Singapore met on the 17th and 18th of September in Singapore and agreed to liberalize air services between Singapore and all cities in Japan other than Tokyo based on the Asian Gateway Initiative.

Under the agreement, Singaporean carriers will be allowed to operate two daily flights between Haneda, Tokyo and Singapore during the late-evening and early-morning hours after the opening of the fourth runway (slated for October 2010).

Similarly, the Japanese carriers will be accorded the same rights. In addition, Singapore will be able to add one daily flight on its route between Singapore and Narita, Tokyo after the completion of Narita’s 2nd runway expansion which is slated for March 2010, thus a total of three daily flights can be operated.

Further, the agreement allows Singapore to operate a daily flight beyond Kansai, Osaka and Central Japan, Nagoya respectively to a city in the US including the East Coast.

The agreement came after the aviation officials of Japan and Finland met in Helsinki on September 11 and 12. Both governments agreed to increase the current traffic rights to operate up to 21 flights a week both from Japan and Finland with immediate effect.

The new agreement further grants both Japanese and Finnish carriers traffic rights to operate up to 24 flights per week from/ to Japan in 2010 when Tokyo’s Narita International Airport expects to expand its take-off and landing slots, thereby, Finnair will be able to enhance its weekly frequency between Osaka’s Kansai International and Helsinki’s Vantaa Airport from the current 7 weekly flights up to 10.

On the Nagoya/ Helsinki route, the airline has traffic rights for 5 flights per week and currently operates 4. The new agreement entitles Finnair to operate also daily out of Chubu International. Tokyo’s Narita International Airport will expect daily service as well, an increase from the present 4 weekly flights. Consequently, Finnair will enjoy daily operations from all 3 airports in Japan.

Japan Airlines, which presently has traffic rights to operate 16 flights a week, will be able to increase its weekly frequency by 8 flights to 24 when landing and take-off slots are eventually increased at Narita International Airport in 2010.

During the summer schedules this year, Finnair has been operating 4-weekly service to Helsinki from Narita, daily service from Kansai and 4-weekly service from Chubu, all in a code-sharing agreement with Japan Airlines.

Finnair carried 302,000 passengers in total during FY2007 including the passengers of the partner airline, posting a vibrant traffic increase of 31% year-on-year.

The agreement came after the aviation officials of Japan and Malaysia met on July 24 and 25. Both governments in principle agreed on the deregulation based on the Asia Gateway Initiative excluding the metropolitan airports of Narita and Haneda. Japan has now concluded an agreement concerning the deregulation with four countries and two regions.

During the round of talks, both parties established for the first time a framework of future international scheduled flights to operate from/ to Haneda based on the “Expansion Plan of Operational Functions and Efficiency at Metropolitan Airports (Narita/ Haneda)” as already announced last May. (So-called Fuyushiba Plan)

The completion of Haneda’s 4th runway, which is scheduled to become operational in October 2010, will thus allow both Japanese and Malaysian airlines to operate up to 7 weekly flights between Haneda and Malaysia with the late evening and early morning departure/ arrival slots from 10 pm to 7 am the following morning, according to the established framework.

Regarding the other countries and regions with which Japan has made an agreement regarding the deregulation, MLIT, Ministry of Land, Infrastructure, Transport and Tourism intends to further negotiate an operational framework at Haneda Airport with respective country and region concerned based on the Fuyushiba Plan.
