Terminal 2 Changes
Terminal 2, previously a domestic terminal will have a portion of it’s terminal converted to international gates. Gate 73 will be built and gate 72 and 73 will be used as a solely for international flights while 71-66 will be used for both domestic and international flights. ANA will move it’s international operation to the new international terminal.

These changes are now possible because the no-fly zone above the city lasting until 2020 has been taken away. These project cost at an estimated 1,040 billion yen or about $9.5 billion US dollars. Terminal 1 will also be refurbished.
