15th Anniversary of Kobe Airport

Today marks the 15th anniversary of the opening of Kobe Airport. We are truly delighted to celebrate this day and would like to take this opportunity to thank our airport guests and all those who have supported the airport since its opening on February 16, 2006.

While the aviation industry is still facing tremendous difficulties due to the spread of the coronavirus, we are confident that air traffic demand for Kansai will grow once again in the medium to long term, supported by the World Masters Games and the Kansai-Osaka Expo. We hope Kobe will transform into an even more attractive destination in terms of both business and tourism in the coming years.

While closely working with our local community and stakeholders, we will continue to make utmost efforts to deliver convenient and comfortable services to all our customers.
