Delta will resume flights between Los Angeles and Tokyo Haneda on Oct. 30.
The route will operate three-times weekly through November, then increase frequency to daily.
Delta last flew between LAX and Tokyo in March 2020. The carrier said it is resuming the flight in anticipation of a broader reopening of Japan to foreign travelers. Currently, leisure travelers must be part of a package tour to visit the island nation.
Delta will fly LAX-Tokyo Haneda with Airbus A330-900neo aircraft equipped with Delta One business class, Delta Premium Select premium economy class and a main cabin split between Comfort Plus and standard economy seats.
