Japan's ministry of land, infrastructure, transport and tourism (MLIT) has allocated 25 new slots at Tokyo's Haneda airport to six carriers.
The allocation was made as part of efforts to increase the number of slots for domestic services to 20,000 per year, says the ministry.
Eight of the slots have been awarded to All Nippon Airways, five to Star Flyer and four to Skymark Airlines. Air Do was awarded two slots, while both Japan Airlines and Solaseed Air were awarded three slots respectively.
The allocated slots will be available for use from summer 2013, adds the MLIT.
