Osaka (ITM) Airport

Osaka ITM Airport Overview

Osaka International Airport ITM (formerly named 'Itami Airport') handles - despite its name, only domestic flights for  the Japanese cities of Osaka, Kyoto & Kobe in the Kansai region of Japan. (Osaka's international airport is Kansai KIX, which also serves some domestic flights, but is further away from central Osaka.)  Both ITM & KIX airports are connected by the Osaka Monorail. 
Note that New Kansai International Airport Corporation  (tel. +81-724-55-2093 /fax: 2052) is now the Operator of both Kansai & Itami Airiports and intends to transform both Airports into the 'most advanced facilities of their kind in Asia'. 

ITM Airport is only 10 km north of central Osaka (and is the closest Airport to Kyoto).  While airport land is within Hyogo Prefecture, the terminal complex itself is in Toyonaka, Osaka Prefecture. The only access to the Airport is by a long tunnel passing below runway & apron.

Osaka International Airport is mainly served by JAL in the North Terminal and ANA & Ibex in the South Terminal.

The on-Airport 'Osaka Airterminal Hotel' is located in the main terminal's Central Block, level 3.

Osaka International Airport has one passenger terminal, divided into South & North Terminals, with a Central Building in between.

NOTE:  As of March 2016, new Airport Operators Orix & Vinci were selected to officially operate both Kansai & Osaka Airports (each holding a 40 percent share, and 20 percent by minority shareholders).
