Kagoshima Airport (鹿児島空港 Kagoshima Kūkō?) (IATA: KOJICAO: RJFK) is an airport located in Kirishima, Kagoshima Prefecture, Japan, 29.6 km (18.4 mi) northeast of Kagoshima-Chūō Station[1] in Kagoshima City. It is the second-busiest airport in Kyushu after Fukuoka Airport.

History[edit]

The airport opened in 1972, replacing a former Imperial Japanese Navy airfield in the Kamoike area near the city center, which had served as the city's main airport since 1957. The site of the former airport was re-developed and is now the site of the Kagoshima Prefecture government office, among other buildings.
