Tokyo Narita (NRT) Airport
Tokyo Narita NRT Airport Overview
Tokyo Narita International Airport NRT is Japan's largest Airport, serving the greater Tokyo Area with mainly international flights (while Tokyo Haneda Airport serves mainly domestic flights). It is continuing to be gateway to Japan and is acting as core to the Country's recovery process. Other than some lighting to conserve power, the Airport is operating normally. A radiation monitoring device provides twice a day readings.
NRT Airport is located in the city of Narita (with a part of it extending into the town of Shibayama), within the Chiba Prefecture, 7 km southeast of Narita Station and 58 km east of Tokyo Station. With the recent opening of the Narita Sky Access route, the Skyliner (160 km/hr), departing Airport Terminal 2 Station, will get you into central Tokyo's Nippori Station within 36 minutes! Three major highways afford access to the Airport; there is also a new expressway (North Chiba Road) along the Narita Rapid Railway corridor.
With two long runways and an estimated 30 million passengers in 2012, Narita International Airport serves as the main international hub for Japan Airlines and All Nippon Airways ANA, and it is also a hub for Delta Airlines. Its numerous airlines serve connecting points between Asia and the Americas.
Note that Airport staff with foreign language skills wear appropriate badges.
The passenger terminal complex at Narita International Airport consists of two passenger terminals - T1 & T2 (a new Low-Cost Terminal is to open soon): T1 & T2 are connected by free shutle buses, running every 10 minutes.
Present and future Airport developments: Narita's new LCC (Low-Cost Carrier) Terminal is under construction, to be completed by 2015. Until that time check-in for LCCs is in Terminal 2, level 1. Both Air Asia Japan & JetStar Japan are to move into this terminal upon completion.
