Central Japan International Airport Centrair (’†•”‹σ`, Chūbu Kūkō, airport code: NGO), just outside Nagoya, is Japan's fourth most important international airport after Tokyo's Narita Airport and Haneda Airport and Osaka's Kansai Airport.

Constructed on a man made island in the Bay of Ise, Central Japan Airport was opened in February 2005 in time for the Expo 2005 Aichi, taking over all international and most domestic air traffic, formerly handled by Nagoya's Komaki Airport. It is one of Japan's most convenient and pleasant airports, offering a wide range of shopping and dining opportunities that even include a public bath.

The airport consists of a two terminal buildings. Terminal 1 is the main terminal for domestic and international flights by most airlines, while terminal 2 is a smaller terminal for use by discount airlines. It is possible to walk between the two terminals in about 5-10 minutes via moving walkways.

Just next to terminal 2 stands the Flight of Dreams shopping and dining complex which opened in autumn 2018 and exhibits the first-ever manufactured Boeing 787 airplane and is themed after Seattle where the headquarters of Boeing were originally located. Besides Seattle-themed shops and restaurants, the complex contains a children-friendly museum about (Boeing) airplanes. Japanese companies contributed greatly towards the development of the Boeing 787 aircraft.
