I’ve begun looking at flights to Tokyo for the 2020 summer games as flight schedules open. The games will be held from July 24th through August 9th of next year, and flight schedules are opening for the last week of July. As you might expect, fares are elevated already, as demand will definitely be high to these trips. Currently, however, flights from Los Angeles and Philadelphia are still at relatively low prices. Typically, summer flights on these routes are over $1,000, but here’s what available from those two cities.

  • Los Angeles from $801 (Philippine Airlines)
  • Philadelphia from $849 (American Airlines and Japan Airlines)

These, like most fares to Asia, are main cabin economy fares, including seat selection and checked bags. For comparison, flights on the same dates from  San Francisco from $957 (China Airlines and JAL), Seattle from $1104 (Asiana), Chicago from $1,028 (Eva), New York (Asiana) from $1,004…you get the gist. I’m not sure how long these prices will last, so if you’re planning to see the Olympics in Japan you might want to jump on these now.
