Haneda's terminal arm dives into management business at Palau airport

The Japan Times

Tokyo's Haneda airport will launch a terminal-management business at Palau airport in its first such project overseas. It now hopes to replicate that success with the airport run by the Pacific island nation. Last year, over 80 million people passed through Haneda, the world's fifth-busiest airport, and growth is expected to continue ahead of the 2020 Tokyo Olympics. Domestic terminals 1 and 2 are owned, managed and operated by Japan Airport Terminal Co., while the terminal for international flights is owned, managed and operated by Tokyo International Air Terminal Corp. Japan Airport Terminal, in cooperation with trading house Sojitz Corp., aims to make the most of its know-how and skills in managing Palau airport through the joint venture Palau International Airport Corp. Palau airport, which has a 2,100-meter runway, handles midsize jets such as the Boeing 767, but the terminal, which is under the direct management of the Palau government, is narrow, crowded and short on seats.
