Fukuoka Airport

Fukuoka Airport (福岡空港) is an international airport in Fukuoka, Japan. Its IATA Airport Code is FUK.

The airport is located in Hakata Ward, South-East of the city centre. It is connected to the rest of the city by subway and road, and a subway from the airport to the business district takes less than ten minutes.

Fukuoka Airport was the site of an aircraft accident on July 13, 1996 when a Garuda Indonesia Airways DC-10 crashed on take-off, killing 3 passengers.

With Fukuoka's expanding role as a hub for business and travel in East Asia, Fukuoka City is considering moving the airport further inland or to an offshore artificial island to accommodate increased traffic.
