Passenger Terminal Today - Elizabeth Baker
Kansai International Airport in Japan has completed the first phase of its remodeling works, with the inauguration of a new domestic area in Terminal 1.
The area was redesigned around a new lounge, new shops and restaurants. The offerings were chosen to celebrate the flavors of Kansai and improve the functionality of the airport’s commercial spaces.
The second phase of work will be completed in December 2023, with the opening of the new international area. The remodeling is intended to improve passengers’ experience along their entire journey (check-in, emigration, shopping areas, boarding) while deploying new technologies to serve passengers.
The airport has been operated by Vinci Airports with its partner ORIX since 2016.
