List of airports in Japan facts for kids
In Japan, airports serving civil aviation routes are governed by Japanese law.
The Airport Development Law establishes four classifications for airports.
- Hub/First Class airports (拠点空港) serve a hub role in domestic or international transportation.
- Regional/Second Class airports (地方管理空港) are regional airports which are important to national aviation.
- Joint-use/Third Class airports (共用空港) are smaller airports which are shared between civil aviation and the Japan Self-Defense Forces (JSDF).
- Other airports (その他の空港) are outside the above categories.
- Examples are: Kisarazu Air Field, Shimofusa Air Base
Some airports in Japan are not within the scope of the Japanese airport statutes. These include U.S. military bases: Kadena Air Base, Iwakuni Air Base and Yokota Air Base.
