  • Guam/Saipan-Japan flights increase to 59 weekly flights, increasing seat capacity by 17% compared to the 2019 summer schedule
  • New and increased trans-Pacific routes from Japan offer more convenient and quicker connections for Asia-Pacific travelers

GUAM, February 22, 2023 - United Airlines announced today its 2023 Japan and Guam summer flight schedule, effective March 26, 2023. United will significantly increase its flights on all routes between Guam (GUM) and Japan -- Narita/Tokyo (NRT), Chubu/Nagoya (NGO), Kansai/Osaka (KIX), and Fukuoka (FUK) -- to a total of 56 flights a week. In particular, United continues to strengthen the Narita-Guam route and will increase its flights from 18 to 25 flights per week and plans to operate up to four daily flights to meet strong passenger demand.

“The summer travel demand from Japan to Guam is looking promising right now, which is positive news for the island,” said Sam Shinohara, United's Managing Director of Airport Operations, Asia-Pacific. “Looking back to the start of the pandemic when tourism came to a halt, we continued to fly our Guam routes with the commitment of supporting the local community as well as the return of tourism to the region. With the new summer schedule, we are another step closer to our goal of restoring a full Guam-Japan schedule.”

The Japan to Guam/Saipan summer flight schedule, which becomes effective on March 26, 2023, is listed below:

Shinohara added, “United will be celebrating 55 years as Guam’s hometown airline in 2023, and we understand how increasing capacity between Japan and Guam is vital to Guam’s tourism industry. I thank our Japan team for continuing to promote Guam as a top destination for Japanese travelers and our tourism stakeholders in Guam for working together for the benefit of the island.”

Japan’s flight capacity significantly expands in time for summer travel
As travel to and from Japan continues to increase, United also announced that Japan will launch two new trans-Pacific flights and increase frequency to a total of 10 daily flights, significantly expanding connectivity options for customers through 70 weekly flights.

“Capacity increases in Japan benefit our customers throughout Asia-Pacific by providing more convenient flight options to connect. This will mean fewer stops to make and shorter travel times overall,” said Shinohara.

Japan is United’s largest station in Asia that provides connections from three of Japan’s major airports on 10 routes to the U.S: four routes from Narita/Tokyo (NRT), one from Kansai/Osaka (KIX), and five from Haneda/Tokyo (HND).

The Japan trans-Pacific flight schedule, also effective on March 26, 2023, is listed below:
