Japan Begins Changes to Encourage Business Aviation Sector
The Japanese Civil Aviation Bureau has pledged to make its airports more attractive to the business aviation sector after admitting that they were ‘not so user-friendly’.
In the last five years, Japan has been taking steps to make business aviation a larger part of the country’s growth strategy, particularly in advance of the 2020 Tokyo Olympic Games.
The improvements include a number of measures to make the major airports more accessible to corporate jets with additional parking, additional taxiways and dedicated customs and terminal space for business passengers.
A spokesman for the Civil Aviation Bureau said that although the results of the initial efforts have been slow, the first six months of this year has shown an increase of 14%.
