Tokyo International Airport in Japan has opened its fourth runway and new international terminal building ahead of scheduled international flights on 31 October.

The airport has spent JPY110bn ($1.3bn) to build the 154,000m², five-storey international terminal building.

The new D-runway was built on the south eastern side of the airport at a total cost of JPY600bn ($7.3bn) to reduce noise pollution in the residential area, situated west of the airport.

In three years, the number of slots will be increased 1.5 times to nearly 447,000 a year, 90,000 of which will be for international flights, according to The Mainichi Daily News.

The airport will operate a total of 46 international flights from 1 November, and will expand its network of international flights to connect 17 cities in 11 countries and territories.
