History

Nakashibetsu Airport was constructed as an Imperial Japanese Navy airfield in 1944. It opened for civilian use following the war in 1965, and scheduled service to Okadama Airport in Sapporo began in 1974, followed by service to New Chitose Airport in 1980 and Tokyo Haneda Airport in 1990. Chitose flights were suspended in 2008 but resumed following the termination of Okadama service in 2010.[2]

In 2011, the Hokkaido government announced that landing fees would be waived for international charter flights using the airport in an attempt to lure more overseas tourists to the region.[3]
