2030 target year set for international flights at Kobe airport

Sept. 19 – Tokyo (The Yomiuri Shimbun/ANN) – Kobe Airport will be allowed to start scheduled international flight services from around 2030, according to an agreement reached on Sunday. The decision was made by concerned members of the public and private sectors, at a meeting in Osaka on the three airports in the Kansai region: Kansai International Airport, Osaka International Airport (Itami) and Kobe airport. Kobe Airport will be able to operate international charter flights from around 2025. Also from 2025, Kansai International Airport will increase the upper limit of its hourly arrivals and departures by 30%. This will strengthen its ability to accept foreign tourists, whose numbers are expected to increase following Expo 2025 Osaka, Kansai.

Kobe airport has specialized in domestic flights since its launch in 2006, but the agreement reached on Sunday gave the green light for scheduled international flights in the future. Its role as an alternative to Kansai International Airport will be clarified, and 2030 has been tentatively set as the target year, based on demand trends and the level of congestion at Kansai International Airport. Up to 40 international arrivals and departures per day are expected for Kobe airport. International charter flights will allow Kobe Airport to serve as an alternative to Kansai International Airport, where international flights are expected to concentrate during the expo. The number of daily domestic flights arriving and departing from Kobe airport will also be increased to 120 from the current 80. The Yomiuri Shimbun
