New Chitose Airport (新千歳空港 Shin-Chitose Kūkō) (IATA: CTS, ICAO: RJCC), is an airport located 2.7 NM (5.0 km; 3.1 mi) south southeast of Chitose and Tomakomai, Hokkaidō, Japan, serving the Sapporo metropolitan area. By land area, it is the largest airport in Hokkaidō. In FY 2006, it served 18,536,350 passengers, third in Japan to only Narita and Haneda.

The airport has a single semicircular terminal building (similar to the terminals at DFW Airport), which handles domestic flights.The new international terminal opened on March 26, 2010, to handle increasing passengers from overseas.

History

New Chitose opened in 1991 to replace Chitose Airport (now a JASDF base). Its IATA airport code was originally SPK, but that code was later adopted as a city code to refer to both Chitose and the smaller Okadama Airport in central Sapporo.

New Chitose became Japan's first 24-hour airport in 1994. During the 1990s, it was touted as an international gateway and had regular flights to Europe and Oceania. Today, its services to Europe have ceased, while its international services are mainly transporting tourists from East Asia and Australia for sightseeing and skiing.

On July 24, 1999, All Nippon Airways Flight 61, which was flying from Tokyo International Airport to Chitose, was hijacked shortly after takeoff. The hijacker killed the pilot before he was subdued. The Boeing 747 landed safely.

On March 26, 2010, a new international flight terminal nearby the original terminal were opened for service
