Thank you once again to anyone who took part in any of the previous airport quizzes. The answer to the last one was Hammerfest Airport, well done to anyone who got it right. As you may be aware the last two airports were European so this time I have changed it a bit.
Remember to please send me a PM of you want to suggest an airport for the next quiz.
As always the rules are the same:
- Do not change your answer after seeing the results
- Do not look up the answer online
- Do not post the answer in the replies
So anyway here we go
The airport for the town was opened in 1964 at an altitude of 200M in a valley, this caused problems due to frequent low visibility.
But in the 80s a plan to build a new airport began and what is now the current airport was built in 1987 and unlike the previous airport this one was equipped with ILS.
Despite being opened in 1987 its first scheduled flight wasn’t until 1994 which was operated by ANA to Tokyo.
In 1995 several changes were made to make the airport suitable for international operations and in the same year two airlines started international routes there.
In 2003 ANA withdrew from the airport and they gave their routes to Skymark Airlines which ceased its operation to the airport in 2003 as well.
In 2010 the Shinkansen (or bullet train) was extended to this town meaning the airport became even less popular.
In 2012 plans began to privatise the airport
Nowadays 5 different airlines operate to this airport with routes to 5 destinations.
