Narita International Airport in Narita, Chiba Prefecture will make high-speed electric vehicle (EV) charging stations available to all visitors in October.

The airport is beginning a year-long demonstration test with Yokohama-based Japan Charge Network Co., Ltd. (JCN). There will be two 24-hour, free-to-use high-speed charging stations installed at the airport's P1 and P2 parking zones, available to EV drivers regardless of whether or not they are JCN members. Narita Airport will announce the service's start date and other details on its website as soon as they are determined.

The airport and its business partners have already begun using EVs and plug-in hybrid vehicles (PHVs) for operations, the goal being to make Narita an "eco-airport" that has less of an environmental impact. After the demonstration test for Narita's first public charging stations comes to an end, the airport will examine the reception among EV drivers before considering the addition of more charging stations and an introduction of fees.

Thus far, other Japanese airports such as Haneda, Mt. Fuji Shizuoka, Chubu International, Kansai International, Kobe, Okayama and Kitakyushu have also been installing high-speed EV charging stations for the general public, many of which are free to use.
