Japanese LCCs call on improvements at Tokyo Narita Airport

Jetstar Japan CEO Miyuki Suzuki and AirAsia regional head Zaman Ahmad, speaking at CAPA's LCCs & New Age Airlines in North Asia Conference in Macau called (06-Sep-2012) on improvements to be made at Tokyo Narita International Airport, where both LCCs are based. The airport has a curfew, can be congested, and terminals have restricted opening hours, the two executives noted. However, Ms Suzuki said Narita understands the implications. "Its future depends on LCCs using it," she said of international traffic shifting to Tokyo Haneda. She noted Narita is constructing a dedicated LCC terminal for use from 2015.
