Airport Overview

Situated 20km east of Kumamoto City, Kumamoto Airport sits atop the Takayubaru Plateau on the western side of the Aso outer mountain ridge. The airport lies within the municipalities of Mashiki Town (Kamimashiki District), Kikuyo Town (Kikuchi District), Ozu Town (Kikuchi District), and Nishihara Village (Aso District). There are few houses around the airport – instead you’ll find many farms, golf courses, and natural forests. With the smoky Aso volcano visible to the east, and faraway Mt. Unzen visible to the west, Kumamoto Airport occupies a truly scenic location in beautiful Kumamoto Prefecture.

Management Information


Kumamoto Airport was relocated in 1971 from the former army airport located in Kengun, Kumamoto, and opened in April of that year. Kumamoto Airport Building Co., Ltd. was established prior to this in 1969. Since opening, there have been four major stages of the airport, with renovations and expansions conducted in 1974, 1991, and 1999, to further satisfy our customers. Our terminal buildings are our customers’ “entrances to the sky,” yet we were receiving requests to improve them. This was achieved, along with construction to create more space and improve earthquake resistance, in the fifth stage renovation completed in 2012. Our unending goal is to provide our customers with safety, comfort, and peace of mind.
