Fukuoka Airport (FUK)
Fukuoka Airport is centrally located in Fukuoka approximately 3 kilometres from Hakata Station. Its single runway divides a domestic terminal (serving flights from cities such as Narita, Tokyo, and Okinawa) from an international terminal (serving flights from Shanghai, Hong Kong and Seoul to name a few), both accessible via shuttle bus. Each terminal is equipped with all the innovations you would find at a modern airport including relaxation rooms, Fukuoka Duty Free Tenjin store and plenty of shopping and restaurant options. Due to Fukuoka residential requirements, the airport operates only from the hours of 7AM to 10PM.
You will find car rental information desks located on the first floor of the domestic terminal, and in the arrivals lobby on the first floor of the international terminal. There is also a phone service located in departures on the 3rd floor. Provide your car hire agent with your rental details and they will shuttle you to their office located only minutes away in Fukuoka.
