All Nippon Airways Toyama-Haneda Policy to launch large aircraft until the Hokuriku Shinkansen resumes Oct. 15 19:37
While it is expected that it will take at least one to two weeks to resume the entire Hokuriku Shinkansen, which was damaged by Typhoon No. 19, all Nippon Airways will have more than half of the flights connecting Toyama and Haneda to increase transportation capacity. We have established a policy of operating with large aircraft that is more than double the current size.
Since the Hokuriku Shinkansen is set off between Nagano Station and Joetsu Myoko Station, direct operation between Toyama and Tokyo is no longer possible.
According to JR East, it is expected that it will take at least one to two weeks to resume the entire line. Even if the operation is resumed, 120 cars, one third of all vehicles on the Hokuriku Shinkansen, were inundated. For this reason, the number of trains for the time being is expected to be around 50% to 60%.
ANA operates flights between Toyama and Haneda with four round trips a day, with a seating capacity of over 160 seats. In light of this situation, on and after the 16th, at least two round trips are required. We have established a policy to operate on large aircraft with more than double the number of seats.
As a general rule, ANA intends to continue operating on large aircraft until the Hokuriku Shinkansen is resumed on all lines.
If you head from Toyama to Tokyo for the direct operation of the Hokuriku Shinkansen, it will take more than twice the usual because it will go through Kanazawa, Maibara in Shiga Prefecture, etc., and the situation where the flight of the flight is almost full is continuing .
