Tokyo-Narita Ponders Future After Delta's Farewell

Submitted
 
Narita International Airport may find it hard to retain its standing as a pan-Asian transport hub after Delta Air Lines Inc. decided to leave. The U.S. airline plans to transfer all U.S.-Tokyo flights to Tokyo International Airport at Haneda in March 2020, when new routes over the city will increase capacity. TIA is locally known as Haneda airport. (www.japantimes.co.jp) More...

Narita didn't have the capacity when Airlines wanted it. Now it has capacity, Airlines don't want Narita.
United are still using NRT as a hub right?

No - they haven't used it as a hub for several years. They dropped their fifth-freedom flights years before Delta did. In fact, Delta is still operating two of them. Unless you consider UAL's relationship with ANA as a hub factor, but that would mean Frankfurt is a UAL hub as well.

Wow, UA used to have like 10 heavies on the ground at any given point.
What a shame that they're all pulling out.

Delta represents less than 2% of operations at Narita; the claim that "Narita International Airport may find it hard to retain its standing as a pan-Asian transport hub after Delta Air Lines Inc. decided to leave" seems to be a bit of an exaggeration.

That is one way to look at it, certainly. However when you consider that one of the world's largest airlines is leaving the airport completely, that does have reverberations.
