Is Japan one of your bucket list destinations? Have you had to cancel your participation in the Tokyo Summer Olympics and now you want to try again, only this time without sport?
Whether you’ve been wanting to visit Japan for decades or since you’re reading this article, you’re in luck: a major airline recently slashed prices for non-stop flights to Tokyo this fall. Here’s what you need to know to track down and book the tickets before they’re gone.
How to find a flight to Japan for less than $400 each way
This note comes from a recent article by The Points Guy regarding the availability of non-stop flights between Los Angeles International Airport (LAX) and Tokyo Haneda Airport with American Airlines for US$287 each way in August, September and October 2023
The unusually affordable fare comes in response to a relatively new arrival on the scene: Japanese budget airline Zipair, which is offering one-way flights from Los Angeles to Tokyo for less than $400 each way over the same period.
To find American Airlines flights, The Points Guy recommends browsing Google Flights and then booking directly with the airlines. Along with Zipair and AA, you’ll also see some cheap one-way fares for non-stop flights between Los Angeles and Tokyo with Singapore Airlines, with prices hovering around the $400 mark. After that, it’s Delta that starts with fares on that route starting at around $560.

The airline also has additional routes within Asia, between Tokyo Narita International Airport, Seoul Incheon International Airport, Bangkok Swan Napoom International Airport and Changi-Singapore Changi International Airport.
