Japan has a thriving aviation industry, carrying hundreds of millions of passengers each year. However, the most important aspect of the industry may lie in the domestic connections made by its two main carriers, JAL and ANA. Fukuoka and Tokyo are two large cities that are connected by many flights each day. Here’s a bit of info about the two airports
Fukuoka Airport is the principal airport on the island of Kyushu and is the fourth busiest passenger airport in Japan. As of 2017, the airport is the fourth busiest single-runway airport in the world by passenger traffic after Mumbai, London-Gatwick, and İstanbul-Sabiha Gökçen. The airport is surrounded by residential areas; flights stop at 10 p.m. at the request of local residents and resume operation at 7 a.m. The domestic terminal is connected to the city by subway, and a subway from the airport to the business district takes less than ten minutes
Haneda was the primary international airport serving Tokyo until 1978; from 1978 to 2010, Haneda handled almost all domestic flights to and from Tokyo as well as “scheduled charter” flights to a small number of major cities in East Asia, while Narita International Airport handled the vast majority of international flights. In 2010, a dedicated International Terminal, current Terminal 3, was opened at Haneda in conjunction with the completion of a fourth runway, allowing long-haul flights during night-time hours. Haneda opened up to long-haul service during the daytime in March 2014, with carriers offering nonstop service to 25 cities in 17 countries
