We normally use "arrive in" for cities, towns, and countries, and "arrive at" for other places. So both your sentences are correct and:
arrive at the airport
arrive at Tokyo Airport
arrive in Tokyo
But if you're referring to a point on a journey, this also becomes possible:
P.S. "Flight" is a Countable Noun so you need either an Article or a Possessive Pronoun to go with it
