At 14 million+ annual pax, does this make Itami the largest airport around globe without intl flights?

There is almost 0% chance that ITM can resume back to international operations but UKB is better and more ideal than ITM for international flight anyway.
It’s right next to Sannomiya, center of Kobe and has the proximity to connect to Shinkansen to go to Western Japan.
It doesn’t have noise issue as it’s man made airport. Better infrastructure and lots of land still vacant waiting to be developed.
Well these really aren’t surprising because KIX was originally selected to be built there....

People have to remember that HND didn't open up to international flight b/c they really wants to do that, but rather, NRT was reaching capacity and it's just extremely hard to expand around NRT with all those landowners still holding onto plots of land. HND noise concern is actually fairly low as it's next to the bay, i.e. approaches are over water, while departures immediately turn towards Tokyo Bay.
