I would like to express my sincere gratitude to everyone’s continued support for Chubu Centrair International Airport. I would also like to express my deepest condolences to those who lost their lives in the Noto Peninsula Earthquake, and my heartfelt sympathy to all those who affected by the disaster.
Last year, Centrair Group has made steady efforts in achieving profitability and investing for the future. Although the airport faced some challenges such as labor shortage and delayed recovery of international flights, we were able to achieve profitability in the first half of the year. In addition, we have formulated a new medium-term management strategy to set a direction for the future of Centrair and to accelerate the consideration of specific measures.
Now in 2024, thanks to the continuous support of the local communities, Chubu Centrair International Airport has been able to celebrate its 19th anniversary. As the gateway to Chubu (Central Japan) region and by extension, the whole Japan, Centrair will be focusing on the construction of a substitute runway, renovation of Terminal 1, as well as realization of SDGs through measures such as decarbonization in an effort to become an attractive airport that contributes to the further development of local communities.
Ensuring safety and security will continue to be Centrair Group’s top priority and we are aiming to return to profitability for the full year as soon as possible while stabilizing our management foundation. Moreover, in order to ensure a full recovery back to the pre-pandemic levels, making 2024 a year of further progress toward the future, Centrair Group will continue to take on challenges in pursuit of a good airport that delivers excitement and smiles to our customers around the world, and grows together with the local communities and society.
We look forward to your continued support and cooperation.
