Tokyo airport move

TOKYO’S NARITA AIRPORT, 35 miles from the city, controversial when it was opened with “green” protesters severely delaying the whole project, could be under further pressure under plans revealed by the new Japanese government.  Essentially the leadership wants to expand Haneda, now mainly domestic, as an international gateway.  It sits on Tokyo Bay less than ten miles from the city centre and has good rail links.  It currently moves about the same number of passengers as Heathrow.  The government plan includes 24-hour operations, which has not gone down too well locally.  Any opening up of slots could be extremely contentious with airlines crying foul if rival carriers gain any favours. www.narita-airport.jp/en www.tokyo-airport-bldg.co.jp/en
