Sapporo Okadama Airport (札幌丘珠空港 Sapporo Okadama Kūkō) (IATA: OKD, ICAO: RJCO) is an airport located 4 NM (7.4 km; 4.6 mi) north of the city center of Sapporo, Japan. Its scheduled airline service is limited to turboprop flights to other cities in Hokkaidō: larger aircraft use New Chitose Airport, 45 km (28 mi) south of the city. The airport is also used by the Japan Self-Defense Forces and by corporate and general aviation operators: an adjacent facility houses the air traffic control center for Hokkaido and the Tohoku region.

History

Okadama was constructed between 1942 and 1944 as an airfield for the Imperial Japanese Army. Following Japan's surrender to the United States in 1945, ending World War II, the United States Army Air Force took over the airfield, holding it until the end of the US occupation in 1952. Following the occupation, the field reverted to the Japan Self-Defense Forces. Civilian passenger operations began in 1956.
