Centrair Airport


Central Japan International Airport Centrair (airport code: NGO), just outside Nagoya, is Japan's third most important international airport after Tokyo's Narita Airport and Osaka's Kansai Airport.

It is also known as Chubu Airport.

Constructed on a man-made island in the Bay of Ise, Central Japan Airport was opened in February 2005 in time for the Expo 2005 Aichi, taking over all international and most domestic air traffic, formerly handled by Nagoya's Komaki Airport.
