FTA-3 took off from Nagoya Airfield at 9:23 am on March 13 (JST), and arrived at the Airport, via Guam International Airport, Majuro International Airport in Republic of the Marshall Islands, Honolulu International Airport and San Jose International Airport.

The total flight distance and time were approximately 14,000 km and 19 hours and 48 minutes respectively.
