Kansai International Airport is currently undergoing its first large-scale renovation project since its opening in 1994. Following the opening of the first "New Domestic Area" in December 2022, the second phase, Phase 2, will be completed. As such, the international departure area has been reborn and opened on December 5, 2023!

In the new international departure area, the north and south immigration checkpoints are centrally located, allowing passengers to go through immigration procedures more smoothly. In addition to the walk-through duty-free store, there will be a central plaza area and four Mood areas, with 27 new stores opening.

Full opening is scheduled for 2026, and we will continue to provide our customers with a new travel experience.
