Nagoya: Central Japan International Airport serving Nagoya held a ceremony on Tuesday at its passenger terminal building to mark the 100 millionth visitor, achieving the milestone seven and a half years after opening in February 2005.
To mark receiving 100 million visitors, including passengers and those who came to see people off, the operator said it will give away pouches containing sweets and mementos tomorrow and on Thursday on the fourth floor of the passenger terminal building, while holding a thank-you lottery through September 14 in which winners will receive overseas tours using the airport among other prizes.
The offshore airport, known as Centrair, in Tokoname, Aichi Prefecture, received its 50 millionth visitor in 2008. As of August 1, it offered international services linking 26 overseas cities and domestic services connecting 17 cities in Japan. (Kyodo)
