Morioka Hanamaki Airport (盛岡花巻空港, Hanamaki Kūkō) or Iwate-Hanamaki Airport (IATA: HNA, ICAO: RJSI) is a regional airport located 6 km (3.7 mi) north-northeast[2] of the city of Hanamaki, Iwate Prefecture, in the Tohoku region of northern Japan.

History

Hanamaki Airport opened in 1964 with a 1200-meter runway, which was extended to 2000 meters in 1983. On 4 April 2009, a new terminal building was opened on the opposite side of the runway, replacing the now-defunct old terminal building that is situated next to Route 4. Due to this change, Nitanai Station became the nearest train station to the terminal building; however, there is no bus or taxi service at that station, and Hanamaki-Kūkō Station remains the most convenient for access.
