In preparation for the upcoming Olympics, one of the Tokyo International Airports, Haneda will increase 50 flights.

They put a lot of thought into how to increase the flights, because the air traffic has already congested, it seemed impossible to build more runways.

They came up with the idea that airplanes can use current runways more efficiently by changing of flight routes.

That allows more airplanes to takeoff and land.

Now the number of destinations from two international airports in Tokyo is much fewer than that of other countries.

For example, London airport has 343 cities, while Tokyo airport has only 92 cities.

Compare to Hong-kong, the number of passengers in Tokyo is twenty times below.
