Narita to construct terminal for LCCs
Japan's Tokyo Narita International Airport Corp plans to add a passenger terminal in spring 2013 that will exclusively serve low-cost carriers (The Nikkei, 25-Jul-2010). Construction is expected to commence in spring 2011, with the total cost estimated to reach up to USD228 million. It would be Japan's first low-cost carrier terminal. Kansai International Airport, is also considering the construction of an LCCT. Narita Airport will also consider preferential treatment for LCCs, such as lower landing fees. Several possible sites for the new terminal have been proposed, including a location close to the existing terminals.
