Japan has signed new air services agreements with the Philippines and Canada that will allow carriers from those countries access to Tokyo's Haneda airport.
Japan and the Philippines have signed an open skies agreement, under which carriers can operate unlimited number of flights to either country, and onto a third point. Restrictions on codesharing have also been removed, says an official from Japan's ministry of land, infrastructure, transport and tourism.
Airlines can also launch one daily daytime service from Tokyo Haneda to points in the Philippines.
Under the agreement with Canada, carriers from either country will be able to launch a daily daytime service from Tokyo Haneda to any point in Canada from 31 March 2014.
Flightglobal’s FlightMaps Analytics shows that there are no carriers flying from Tokyo Haneda to either Canada or the Philippines.
