In pursuing the ideal situation for Haneda Airport, we aim to be the World’s No. 1 airport.

We wish to extend our sincere thanks to everyone for your continued patronage of our facilities.

Although various conditions overseas such as the economic slowdown in China, and terrorist incidents in France brought concerns to the airline industry last year, thanks to a continuing low yen and relaxation of visa requirements, the Japanese airport industry saw a dramatic increase in the number of travelers on international flights, particularly at the Tokyo metropolitan area airports.

Against this backdrop, our group has been serving a growing number of foreign visitors in recent years, and business, particularly retail product sales, has been steadily increasing. However, with the decision to hold the 2020 Olympics and Paralympics in Tokyo, we have also faced new challenges, such as the need for large-scale capital investment due to the increasing number of departure and arrival slots, dealing with the risk of a decrease in purchasing demand among foreign visitors, particularly in regards to duty-free business, and reforming airport management in order to progress even further.

As we face these challenges, our group has established a new, long-term vision, “To be a World Best Airport.” Pursuing the ideal situation for Haneda Airport in anticipation of the 2020 Tokyo Olympics and Paralympics and the years that will follow, we are pursuing the ideal situation for Haneda Airport, with an aim to become the world’s best airport, and the most highly praised airport in the world by all of our stakeholders.

President and COO, Nobuaki Yokota
