NEW YORK -- Delta Air Lines will shift its hub for flights to Japan to Tokyo's Haneda Airport from Narita International Airport by March 2020, in a move timed with an expected surge of travelers headed to the Summer Olympics.

Calling Haneda the "closest and most convenient airport" to Tokyo, Delta said Friday that the move would make it the largest American carrier serving the hub, with seven flights daily from the U.S. mainland and Hawaii.
