Typhoon shelter for aircraft opens at Naha Airport

Date Posted: 2001-07-07

A roofed new hangar for aircraft to shelter them during typhoons was completed at Naha Airport. The new shelter has been ready for use since Sunday.

The hangar is located to the west of the runway and is 97 meters long, 51 meters wide and 19 meters high. The shelter is big enough for two 150-seat airliners and several smaller planes mainly used for outer island routes. It’s design is strong enough to stand winds up to 80 meters per second.

In the past when the typhoons hit, most of aircraft had to evacuate out of Okinawa. When the typhoon passed it took time for air schedules become normal since customers had to wait for the planes to come back to Okinawa after winds calmed down. Officials look forward to a quicker resume of normal flight schedule after a typhoons’ visit.
