Japanese airport operator Hokkaido Airport Corporation will open a dedicated business aviation terminal at New Chitose airport on 8 December, 2023. The facility will be equipped with security checkpoints, CIQ facilities and lounge space exclusively for business jet passengers, enabling smooth immigration/exit procedures.
As demand for international business jet travel increases, this facility will become a key entry point for premium tourism experiences to Hokkaido. It will enhance the airport’s guest services and promote the influx of high-end travellers to the island.
FBO ground services provider Universal Aviation will co-operate the facility. It already has five locations in Japan and has experience operating GATs at other airports.
