First Japanese Airport Awarded 5-Star Airport Status

Tokyo International Airport Haneda Becomes First Japanese Airport Awarded 5-Star Airport Status in Skytrax’s Global Airport Ranking

Tokyo International Airport Haneda gained 5-Star Airport status, the top quality ranking, in the Global Airport Ranking conducted by Skytrax1 of the UK. Haneda is the first airport in Japan to be granted this honor.

In March this year—for the second year in a row (2013 and 2014)—Haneda's domestic terminals were awarded first place in the World's Best Domestic Airport category, which evaluates ease of use and ease of access among other items, and Haneda's domestic and international terminals2 were presented with first place in the Best Airport Terminal Cleanliness category, which rates airports in such areas as cleanliness and comfort. This year, Haneda also moved beyond awards in individual categories. Haneda was rated comprehensively to be among the best in the world in terms of the quality of its terminal facilities and services overall, based on an evaluation of about 300 items—such as the terminals' core facilities and service facilities (shopping as well as food and beverage facilities) as well as the design and cleanliness of the terminals.

Boasting both domestic and international terminals, Tokyo International Airport Haneda will play a very important role in the future in furthering Japan's development as a tourism-oriented nation and in strengthening air transport hub functions in Japan by making the most of the nation's domestic air transport network.

Placing the highest priority on airport customers, we will continue to provide facilities and services that offer exceptional safety, convenience, comfort, and functionality, so that Haneda continues to be trusted and selected by customers. We will strive to be a passenger terminal that offers the world’s best quality long into the future.
