With Air Asia X increasing the number of flights on its Kansai International Airport – Kuala Lumpur route from 4 per week to 7 per week from November, and Garuda Indonesia establishing direct flights to Jakarta, more and more tourists visiting Japan from Southeast Asia can be expected in the future. Given this situation, Kansai International Airport is working to expand airport facilities and services to provide Muslim visitors with peace of mind.
Kansai International Airport has prepared a Muslim Visitors Guide.
In addition, Kansai International Airport’s only hotel, Hotel Nikko Kansai Airport, also displays the Qibla (the direction to Mecca) in the closest of all guest rooms and is starting a service to lend the necessary costumes and mats for worship to those who require them.
Kansai International Airport employees are also undergoing training to support Muslims so that Kansai International Airport can become a “Muslim-friendly Airport” providing fine service and hospitality.
