Narita International Airport in Japan will construct a new terminal for low-cost carriers (LCCs) and expand its existing terminals as part of a major expansion programme.

The planned expansion will enable the airport to handle more takeoff and landing slots, which are expected to rise 40% from the current 220,000 a year to 300,000 in 2014.

The LCC terminal, to be built south of the first terminal at a cost of ¥3bn ($36m) and ¥5bn ($61m), will begin operation in 2013.

The airport will expand and link the existing two terminals to consolidate landings of the three major airline alliances to one terminal each.

The Narita airport will also expand landing slots for domestic carriers from the current 20,000 a year to about 30,000, according to Daily Yomiuri Online.
