Government to slash international landing fees at small airports

TOKYO -- Japan's transport ministry in fiscal 2016 intends to lower or eliminate landing fees at many of the country's minor airports for airlines that add international flights to and from these gateways, sources said Thursday.

     The government will shoulder the same amount of these landing costs that regional governments do on behalf of airlines. The planned cost reduction would apply to airlines flying via 25 airports other than Haneda, in Tokyo, and a few others that already handle large numbers of foreign tourists.
