High-cost performance aeronautical lights

In the second phase of the project, we adopted high-cost performance aeronautical lights and overseas products, such as runway lights, taxiway lights and others.

1. Introduction of LED devices

We adopted LED (light emitting diode) lighting for taxiway lights, the first time in a domestic airport.
The electricity consumption of LED devices is only 1/3 of what halogen ones consume, and their lifespan is 50-100 times longer, ultimately beneficial for the global environment.

2. Development of original upper base of aeronautical lights

We developed the upper base of aeronautical lights, making the design small and simple. By downsizing our work, the efficiency improved and its production became easier by reducing its cost.

As of 1st April, 2016, Kansai Airports succeeded the operating right for both Kansai International Airport and Osaka International Airport. Please note that the name of the previous operator, New Kansai International Airport Company, Ltd., is described in some materials and articles related to previous operation.
