A new terminal entirely dedicated to low-cost carriers will open at Narita International Airport on Wednesday.
Terminal 3 will handle flights for the growing number of low-cost carriers. The terminal is approximately 500 meters from Terminal 2.
Airport officials said Terminal 3 will feature the finest food court of any Japanese airport ever, and will be equipped with 24-hour convenience stores as well.
The terminal is a 15-minute walk from the nearest JR station and other forms of transportation. However, a shuttle will run between Terminal 2 and 3.
Although three LCCs -- Jetstar Japan, Vanilla Air and Spring Airlines Japan -- will be based in the new terminal, Peach Aviation will continue to funnel passengers through Terminal 1 where it has done so for many years.© Japan Today
