A hillside airport situated at an altitude of approximately 200m.
Aomori Airport is situated on a hillside at an elevation of 198 meters. Located 13km south of central Aomori, it's right in the middle of the prefecture. In summer the green mountainous landscape dazzles and refreshes, while in winter arriving on a runway to see the surrounding mountains covered with snow is a fantastic sight. Aomori Airport is also famous for its snow removal squad, “White Impulse,” who are the fastest workers in Japan. These are the unique attractions of Honshu’s northernmost airport.
