Representatives from Nagoya Airport are here at NBAA (Booth No. C11635) to discuss its convenient location within Japan and its suitability for business aviation travelers. Nagoya is one of the few airports in the country to be considered business-aviation specific, as the larger Central Japan International Airport was built nearby to handle the bulk of the area’s commercial traffic.
For the first time in its history, Japan early next year will dedicate an airport to business and commuter aircraft. In February major airlines will vacate Nagoya Airport, on the outskirts of Tokyo, and move their operations to the new Central Japan International Airport. Nagoya is expected to be recast as Japan’s first hub airport for commuter and business aircraft.
Providing more evidence that business aviation is beginning to cook in Japan, Nakanihon Air Service and Infinity Aviation Group of Nashua, N.H., have teamed to introduce pre-owned midsize corporate jets into the Japanese market.
