Nagoya Chubu Centrair International Airport (NGO)
History, Facts and Overview
A thoroughly modern Japanese airport, Chubu Centrair International Airport (NGO) opened in the spring of 2005. Using the latest in construction methods and telecommunications, Nagoya's sparkling new airport was constructed on a man-made, D-shaped island within the Ise Bay, which was landscaped with the natural environment and wildlife in mind. Traffic was immediately relocated from the already existing Nagoya Airport, which is no longer in use.
ATMs, banks and bureaux de change are on hand in various locations, being operated by the Bank of Tokyo-Mitsubishi UFJ, Citi Bank, Shinkin Bank and Travelex. Internet kiosks and Wi-Fi access are also readily available, along with four lounges, operated by Centrair, KAL, Sakura and Star-Alliance. Shops, dining and relaxation facilities are also plentiful at Nagoya Chubu Centrair International Airport, including the 'Yurara' hair salon, and large 'Miya-no-Yu' public bath in the Sky Town area, offering breathtaking views of the aircraft as they arrive and depart.
Those with shopping on their mind when arriving at Nagoya's Chubu Centrair Airport will find more than 50 different stores, such as Ana Festa, the Blue Sky, Claires, Lawson, Mahora and the Sony Shop. Passengers with time to dine out will be able to enjoy Chinese, French, Italian, Korean, Japanese and Western-style cuisine, with the main restaurants clustered on the third and fourth floors and generally open between 06:00 and 21:00, or later.
In addition to the onsite business centre at Chubu Centrair Airport, the Nagoya Tokyu Hotel is located in downtown Nagoya and just a 20-minute drive from the airport, offering further business and conference facilities.
