All Nippon Airways plans to establish an international hub for its short-haul Asian routes at Chubu International Airport near Nagoya, which is scheduled to open in Feb. 2005. ANA intends to operate daily service to Seoul and Shanghai from Chubu and is considering opening routes to other parts of Asia, especially to China, in the fiscal year that begins April 1, 2005. The airline said the exact flight schedule and types of aircraft that will be used will be announced at a later date. The new airport is being constructed on a manmade island roughly 20 mi. from Nagoya. Chubu, which will take over most flights now operated to Komaki International Airport, will feature a single 11,300-ft. runway and will be capable of handling up to 20 million passengers a year. Plans call for a second runway of 13,000 ft. in the future.--LF

I think that's the name of the prefecture in which the airport is located.
I heard the airport was called Central Japan International Airports. Don't really care what it's called; new Japanese airports are always worth looking forward to - good facilities for enthusiasts (and pax).
Incidentally, what's the score on the proposed new runway for Haneda?
