Ground transportation to Fukuoka Airport
As the chief airport for Japan’s island of Kyushu, Fukuoka Airport is one of the country’s busiest airports – an impressive feat for having only one runway! The facility is home to two terminals; the Domestic Terminal and the International Terminal. The Domestic Terminal is home to five floors, which includes one underground level and four above-ground levels, while Terminal 2 provides four above-ground levels. Several amenities are available throughout each terminal including observation decks, museums and indoor shopping malls. An inter-terminal shuttle transfers passengers from one terminal to the other every 5-8 minutes. Ground transportation includes connected access to the Fukuoka City Subway in the Domestic Terminal as well as express buses that pick up at both terminals – car rental services & taxiways are also available along the arrivals level.
There are two main parking areas at Fukuoka Airport; the Domestic Terminal Car Park and the International Terminal Car Park - over 1,700 spaces are divvied between the two terminals; 837 spaces to the domestic area and 897 to international. Each car park is adjacent to its respective terminal. Hourly rates are the same for both parking areas, though long-term rates are much lower in the international parking area. Additional parking perks include discounts for disabled passengers as well as lax rules that lets motorcycles park in vehicle spaces.
