New bus gates for travelers on domestic flights opened on March 12 in Terminal 2 of Narita International Airport in Narita, Chiba Prefecture, outside Tokyo.

The gates will help AirAsia Japan Co., Ltd. and Jetstar Japan Co., Ltd., both operating hubs at Narita, expand their domestic route networks. They are located on the first floor of the terminal, directly below the lounge for boarding gates 63 and 64. With about 800 square meters of floor space, the facility has seating for 210 passengers awaiting departures at bus gates G and H, along with multifunction toilets, a nursing room and more. From the new gates, travelers board buses that take them to aircraft waiting away from the terminal.

Narita needs to expand its terminal buildings' capacity to cope with an expected increase in flight volume on domestic route networks, including the two low-cost carriers (LCCs). The airport will begin handling many more landing slots and flights this month as a new taxiway comes into use.
