Tokushima Airport (徳島飛行場 Tokushima Hikōjō) (IATA: TKS, ICAO: RJOS) is an airport in Matsushige, Tokushima, Japan, near the city of Tokushima.

In addition to scheduled passenger operations, the airport is the base of the Japan Maritime Self-Defense Force training fleet of Beechcraft King Air and UH-60 aircraft. As a result, it is the busiest airport in Shikoku by aircraft operations, with around 15,000 takeoffs and landings each year.The Japanese Ground Self Defense Force has established the 14 Hokotai(Squadron)flying at least 2 Fuji UH-1J and 1 Kawasaki OH-6D by Mid April 2010 at Tokusima airport.

History

Tokushima Airport opened as an Imperial Japanese Navy air base in 1941.

The current runway was completed in 1987; it is currently being extended to 2,500 m (8,202 ft), with projected completion in 2010.

In previous years, the airport has had scheduled service to Kagoshima (1997-98), Kansai (briefly in 2000), and Osaka/Itami (until 2003). There are currently 12 scheduled flights per day.

On April 13, 2006, Skymark Airlines discontinued its flights to Tokyo International Airport (Haneda) leaving Japan Airlines as the sole carrier to Tokyo. In response to Skymark's exit, Japan Airlines increased the number of flights between the two cities.

A new passenger terminal has opened in the first quarter of 2010.
