Further Information

Official Website

Kansai International Airport has been promoting measures to prevent second-hand smoke in the Passenger Terminal Building based on the principal points of the Health Promotion Act. So that both our smoking customers and non-smoking customers can make use of the airport in an even more pleasant atmosphere, we have enacted a total ban on smoking in restaurants located in the Passenger Terminal Building and in the Aeroplaza throughout the entire day. (However, smoking is allowed in restaurants where smoking rooms have been established.)

We ask you to please use the designated smoking locations and to give us your cooperation in improving smoking manners.
