Narita and Kansai international airports on Wednesday will open a special "fast lane" at immigration intended to decrease the amount of time spent in the airport for individuals visiting or leaving the country for conferences, meetings or other time sensitive activities.
In what will be Japan's first airport "fast lane," incoming VIP passengers will be able to utilize the lane not available to other passengers in order to speed up the immigration process at the airport, Sankei Shimbun reported.
According to airport officials, VIPs will be given a special ID card in advance by conference organizers or airlines. Upon arrival at Narita or Kansai, they simply show the ID coupon and will then be ushered to the fast lane to pass through immigration. The number of coupons will be limited to five per flight.
Some airports overseas, such as London's Heathrow Airport and Singapore's Changi Airport, already operate such lanes.© Japan Today
