Wakkanai Airport customer review
Review by T Wu 1st May 2009
I used Wakkanai Airport to fly out to Tokyo Haneda. It is located about 30 minutes away from Wakanai city. There are only four flights per day by All Nippon Airlines - two in and two out to Haneda and a city in Hokkaido. The three storey building is clean modern and spacious. Check-in is on the ground floor second floor is the arrival and departure gates and third floor is the viewing gallery. Gift shop and a small restaurant are on the second floor just next to the security/departure. The airport is on an open field with no other buildings nearby. Wakkanai Park which the Japan Cup - sled dog racing - is held here annually in the winter is opposite the airport. Like most Japanese regional airports Wakkanai airport is very much under utilized. The ground staff are polite and efficient.
