Takamatsu Airport (高松空港 Takamatsu Kūkō?) (IATA: TAK, ICAO: RJOT) is a second class airport located 8 NM (15 km; 9.2 mi) south southwest of Takamatsu, Kagawa, Japan. It handles a very small number of international flights.
It is equipped with an Instrument Landing System, VHF Omni-directional Radio Range, Distance Measuring Equipment, Airport Surveillance Radar, approach lights, precision approach angle guidance lights, and more.
On January 16, 2013, an All Nippon Airways Boeing 787 (Flight NH692) made an emergency landing at Takamatsu after reporting a battery problem in flight. That aircraft was flying to Haneda Airport during that incident.
Most flights that arrive and depart from Takamatsu Airport are ANA (All Nippon Airways) and Japan Airlines (JAL) planes. Both Airlines transport passengers mainly from Takamastu Airport to Tokyo International airport (Haneda Airport). However, other airlines such as Asiana Airlines transport passengers to airports like Incheon International Airport.
Almost all the airplanes that come from domestic destinations are Boeing 767 or A320 model airplanes. However, ANA has used some Boeing 777-200 planes for trips to and from Tokyo Haneda International Airport.
