New Airport At Kobe/Japan

Mon Nov 20, 2006 2:18 am

Good day,

I have just read by chance, that the new airport, that Kobe City afforded itself, is now up and running.

My question is, are there only Japanese domestic flights or do also any international carriers fly to Kobe?

Osaka with it´s two airports is pretty close and I just wonder...

Regards,

BizFlyer

Kobe & Osaka Itami are solely domestic airports.
Osaka Kansai is the int'l gateway in the region.
The new Kobe Airport opened up in February this year.

Osaka-Convenient to downtown

Osaka-Kansai

Osaka-Few Domestic connections thus...waste

Osaka-Airport Not wanted by local residents but pushed through by political butt heads.

Sometimes I wonder if government people in Kansai need their head checked. Heck all Japanese government workers need their head checked and a slap across the face...but that is a very different topic for non-aviation.

RJBE is absolutely useless. Just a handful of 767s to here and there per day. What a waste.
