Nagasaki Airport (長崎空港 Nagasaki Kūkō?) (IATA: NGSICAO: RJFU) is an international airport located 4 km (2.5 mi) west of the railway station[1] in the city of Ōmura and 18 km (11 mi) north northeast of the Nagasaki railway station in the city of Nagasaki,[1] Nagasaki Prefecture, Japan. The airport terminal and runway 14/32 are on an island, and the shorter runway 18/36 (now used by light general aviation traffic) is on the mainland.

Although Nagasaki is superficially similar to Japan's other island airports, Kansai International Airport, Kobe Airport, Kitakyushu Airport, and Chūbu Centrair International Airport, Nagasaki's island existed (in a radically different shape) before the airport was constructed. Constructing the airport required flattening the island's hills and forming landfill around its shore, expanding it from 0.9 to 1.54 km2 (0.35 to 0.59 sq mi). The island airport opened on May 1, 1975.
