About The Airport

Niigata Airport (KIJ) has 8 domestic regular flights and 4 international flights, passengers over 1 million last year. KIJ is the second largest airport in terms of the number of routes in North East (Tohoku) area in Japan, apparently it serves one of the most important hub airports on the Sea of Japan Coast.

KIJ is in a very accessible and convenient location, only 25 minutes away from JR Niigata Station by limousine bus and 10 minutes away from the nearest highway interchange. Also there are several direct bus routes to the hot-spring area to attract more tourists. In addition to the regional access, it takes only 2 min. to Tokyo by High-Speed train (Shinkansen).

From this year, KIJ and local government provide subsidies to the airline which launches a new route to KIJ under the certain conditions. If you are interested in it, please contact to the pic listed on the same page.
