Second runway to be opened for use on August 2, 2007

At the second session of the Kansai International Airport Promotional Ruling Committee, held at

the Hotel Nikko Kansai Airport—located next to the airport—on June 11th, 2006, Kazuo Kitagawa,

Minister of Land, Infrastructure and Transport announced that the airport’ second runway will be

opened for use as of August 2nd, 2007.

The runway was first scheduled for opening in October 2007, but local business pushed for an earlier

date due to the fact that the IAAF World Championships in Athletics will be held in Osaka in August

2007, followed by the World Chinese Entrepreneurs Convention in September in Kobe.

The runway pavement process having been completed, the taxiway is now in the process of being

paved. Once the airport facility construction aspect of the second phase is successfully implemented this

year, we will follow the necessary procedures in order to meet the August date.
