21 SEPTEMBER 2022, TOKYO: British Airways’ first passenger flight from London to Tokyo since November 2021 will take to the skies on 13 November 2022. Following the news that Japan is further relaxing its travel restrictions, the flight resumption of the UK flag carrier between the two nations is welcoming news.

Flight BA7 is scheduled to touch down in Tokyo Haneda Airport on 14 November at 7:35am and returning flight, BA8 is to depart at 9:45am.

Noella Ferns, British Airways’ Head of Sales, Asia Pacific, said: “We can’t wait to welcome our customers back on board our direct flight between Tokyo and London. We are honoured to play our part again in connecting the two cities.

“We have been flying to Japan for over 70 years and this remains an extremely important market to us.”

The route will operate daily on aircraft Boeing 787-8 Dreamliner with three cabins. Customers can choose our award-winning fully flat bed in Club World (business), World Traveller Plus (premium economy) or World Traveller (economy) cabins.

The Boeing 787 Dreamliner features a LED mood lighting system in the cabin and with lower air pressure that help customers to travel more comfortably and minimise the effect of jet-lag. Instead of pull-down blinds, each window has its own dimmer switch to alter the amount of light coming into the cabin. The Boeing 787 has the largest windows of any commercial airliner. The increase in size allows a greater number of customers to take in some of the amazing views that can be seen in flight, not just the person sitting nearest the window.

• The flight duration from Tokyo to London is approximately 14 hours 40 minutes.
• British Airways has introduced several measures at the airport and on board to look after the safety and wellbeing of its customers and crew. The airline is cleaning all key surfaces including seats, screens, seat buckles and tray tables after every flight and each aircraft is completely cleaned from nose to tail every day. The air on all British Airways flights is fully recycled once every two to three minutes through HEPA filters, which remove microscopic bacteria and virus clusters with over 99.9% efficiency, equivalent to hospital operating theatre standards.
