I would like to express my sincere gratitude for their continued support to everyone involved in the operation of Chubu Centrair International Airport.
Since the opening of the airport in 2005, Centrair Group has been always working to provide safe, secure, and highly convenient operations. Last year, when we celebrated our 15th anniversary, we were about to reach a new stage thanks to a record high number of international passenger flights and the new record of 12.6 million total passengers.
However, due to the spread of COVID-19 around the world, the international passenger flights have been suspended and the airport’s events canceled or drastically reduced since February 2020. In addition, the airline companies that operate in the airport and the stores’ businesses are also in a very difficult situation due to the reduced flight schedule, the temporarily closures, or the shortening of business hours.
On the other hand, amid the difficult times, Chubu Centrair International Airport celebrated its 16th anniversary in 2021. Centrair Group will continue to move forward, working with the local authorities who have always supported us since the very beginning, overcoming the crises and challenges that may arise, believing in the future ahead of us, and never forgetting the dreams and smiles that have brought us here. Furthermore, in order to fulfill our responsibilities as the gateway of Chubu (Central Japan) region, we must prepare for the recovery of air travel demand after the pandemic by steadily planning and implementing preventive measures to become an even more comfortable and attractive airport.
We are counting more than ever on your guidance and encouragement.
