Tokyo Narita Airport to launch terminal for LCCs; KL Singapore, Gold Coast and Avalon expanding

The Nikkei reports the airport – one of the highest cost airports to operate to in the world – will commence construction next Spring on what will become Japan's first terminal dedicated for budget carriers. The move should significantly increase Narita’s attractiveness to foreign LCCs like Jetstar, AirAsia and Tiger Airways in establishing local JVs to tap the massive potential Japanese and North Asian budget airline market.
