 CTS Sapporo New Chitose Airport Info & Guide

Sapporo New Chitose International Airport

Where is Sapporo New Chitose Airport?  

Sapporo is situated on the northern Japanese island of Hokkaido, and is the country's 4th largest city.

Famous for its annual Yuki Matsuri, or Sapporo Snow Festival, the city draws tourists from around the world. It is also known for its role in hosting the 1972 Winter Olympics, the first games held in Asia.

Sapporo Chitose Airport (IATA: CTS, ICAO: RJCC), officially Sapporo New Chitose International Airport, also referred to as Sapporo New Chitose Airport, Sapporo Chitose Airport, Sapporo International Airport, or simply, Sapporo Airport,  is located 5.0 kilometres (3.1 miles) south southeast of the cities of Chitose and Tomakomai, serving the Sapporo metropolitan area, in Ishikari Subprefecture, in Hokkaido Prefecture, Japan. The "new" in the airport's official name refers to its 1991 replacement of the original adjacent Chitose Airport, now a military facility (the two have separate runways, but share taxiways).

The airport's IATA code was changed from SPK to CTS, allowing SPK to be used as a city code to refer to both New Chitose and the smaller Sapporo Okadama Airport (OKD), which handles commuter flights within Hokkaido.

New Chitose Airport serves in excess of 15,000,000 passengers a year, making it the third busiest airport in Japan, after Tokyo Narita Airport and Tokyo Haneda Airport.

Airlines that fly to Sapporo New Chitose Airport include AirAsia Japan, Air China, All Nippon Airways, Cathay Pacific, China Airlines, China Eastern Airlines, Eastar Jet, EVA Air, Fuji Dream Airlines, Hawaiian Airlines, Japan Airlines, Jeju Air, Jetstar Japan, Jin Air, Korean Air, Peach, SAT Airlines, Skymark Airlines, Thai Airways International, TransAsia Airways and United Airlines.
