Four airlines will share the 12 new daily slots at Tokyo Haneda Airport. They will be made available as soon as March. 

In a final decision made on Friday, the Department of Transportation awarded five slots to Delta, four to United, two to American and one to Hawaiian. The DOT decision affirms the tentative Haneda slot awards the department announced in May

With the addition of the new slots, U.S. will be able to operate a total of 18 daily flights to Haneda, up from the existing six. 

The awarded Haneda routes are:

• American: Dallas/Fort Worth, Los Angeles
• Delta: Seattle, Detroit, Atlanta, Portland, Honolulu
• Hawaiian: Honolulu
• United: Newark, Chicago O'Hare, Washington Dulles, Los Angeles.

Travelers prefer Haneda to Tokyo Narita because it is closer to the city's central business district.
