NBAA Convention News

Nagoya seeking bizav

 - September 26, 2007, 3:50 PM

Delegates from Nagoya Airport are here at the NBAA Convention to promote the airport as Japan’s business aviation gateway. The field has seen a 32-percent increase in business aviation traffic, climbing from 90 movements in 2005 to 119 last year. This might not seem like much, but Japan has not generally been a hospitable environment for business aircraft operators since it holds pilots to airline-qualification requirements to fly there. The airport has on-site customs and immigration at the private aviation terminal, allowing passengers to bypass long lines at the field’s airline terminal. Nagoya is Japan’s third-largest city and has convenient bullet-train access to Tokyo and Osaka.
