Established in 1970 as an independent airport consulting firm, Japan Airport Consultants takes a multi-disciplinary approach to airport development, air navigation systems and regional airport infrastructure.

With more than 130 dedicated employees, JAC is staffed with specialists in fields such as airport planning and infrastructure, electrical engineering, telecommunications and air navigation safety. We take pride in our ability to integrate across fields to ensure the project is considered in light of all the relevant technologies.

Our Work

Over nearly half of a century, JAC has provided consulting services to a wide range of projects in Japan and other countries around the world.

Airport Projects in Japan

From major international airports to regional heliports, JAC has provides services to the majority of airfields in Japan.

Tokyo/Haneda International Airport and Narita International Airport in the Tokyo area and Kansai International Airport in Osaka are three of the most important airports in Japan, handling routes and serving as hubs for domestic and international carriers.

JAC has been involved in a series of offshore development projects at Tokyo/Haneda International Airport since its early stages.

The government of Japan announced a offshore expansion plan for Tokyo/Haneda International Airport in 1983, and major expansion and development work has continued ever since.

These three decades of large-scale development have entailed complex engineering for construction carried out near the largest operational domestic hub in Japan with precision coordination to ensure airport service is not interrupted.

The services JAC has provided include runway and facility relocation to reclaimed land, and large-scale projects requiring careful coordination on the micro and macro levels to ensure work proceeded according to specification and schedule.

JAC also participated in a series of planning and design projects for developing Narita International Airport. JAC's latest input for Narita includes a general master plan for further development of Japan's international gateway airport.

Our work at Kansai International Airport has been among our most challenging projects. The world's first completely offshore airport, Kansai presented many new technical issues. JAC has been involved since the early stages in such areas as conceptual planning and detailed design for construction. Currently, we continue our participation with services involving development planning studies.

In recent years, JAC has pushed forward with advances in technology that further improve airfield safety. Our current work includes working with airport authorities at the national and local level toward enhancing satellite-based CNS/ATM. We are also participating in developing new technical standards and development policies related to airfields and flight safety.

Work Overseas

An important part of our work has been overseas, much of it in developing countries and island nations. Working outside of Japan has allowed JAC to develop our expertise in new and unexpected ways, and we are proud of how our team has grown in its collective expertise.

From feasibility studies to the final bolt in the passenger terminal, JAC has been involved at all stages of airport projects overseas. Our consultation services include capacity training and technology transfer to our local counterparts to ensure safe, efficient operation of the completed airports.
