Central Japan International Airport Centrair (ó`, 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 and a Boeing museum.
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 takes 5-10 minutes to walk between the two terminals.
Just next to terminal 2 stands the Flight of Dreams shopping and dining complex which 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.
Central Japan Airport is located about 40 kilometers south of Nagoya. It is conveniently connected with Nagoya and various places across central Japan by public transportation. For access to Nagoya Station, the train is the fastest and cheapest option.
Most transportation options arrive at and depart from the Access Plaza which is located adjacent to Terminal 1 or a 5-10 minute walk from Terminal 2.
The one way journey between Nagoya Station and Central Japan Airport by Meitetsu Railway takes 30 minutes and costs 890 yen (980 yen from March 16, 2024) by non-reserved seat and 1250 yen (1430 yen from March 16, 2024) by reserved seat. The airport trains also provide direct connections to Inuyama and Gifu City. To reach Toyohashi, a transfer of trains is required at Jingu-mae Station.
Several types of trains run between the airport and central Nagoya: Myu Sky limited express trains carry only reserved seats while limited express trains carry both reserved and non-reserved seats. All other types of trains, such as express and local trains, carry only non-reserved seats and are distinctly slower than the limited express trains (about 45 minutes). There are multiple departures every hour.
The Japan Rail Pass is not valid on Meitetsu trains.
Buses operate between the airport and several locations around Nagoya, Aichi Prefecture and the surrounding prefectures. In particular, there is a bus connecting the airport with Sakae in central Nagoya every two hours (40-60 minutes, 1500 yen one way).
A taxi ride into central Nagoya costs about 15,000 yen.
