New Chitose Airport, Sapporo: 4 reviews and 5 photos
New Chitose opened in 1991 to replace Chitose Airport (now a JASDF base). New Chitose became Japan's first 24-hour airport in 1994. By land area, it is the largest airport in Japan. During the 1990s, it was touted as an international gateway and had regular flights to Europe and Oceania. Today, its services to Europe have ceased, while its international services are mainly transporting tourists from East Asia and Australia for sightseeing and skiing. The airport has a single semicircular terminal building which handles domestic and international flights. There is a huge shopping complex called Shopping World where travellers can purchase Japanese souvenirs, sweets, chocolates and fresh seafood.
