What are Japan’s important airports?As of April 2021, Japan has slightly less than 100 commercial airports, including 28 major airports and 54 regional airports. The control of the airports usually lies in the hands of either the national or respective regional authorities, except for four major international airports that are company controlled.
The fifth international airport is Tokyo International Airport, known as Haneda International. From 1978 until the opening of Terminal 3 in 2010, Haneda handled domestic flights only, whereas the second capital airport, Narita International, handled primarily international flights. Haneda and Narita, which are the hubs of All Nippon Airways (ANA) and Japan Airlines (JAL), have the highest traffic among domestic airports.
