HistoryEdit

Ōshima Airport was built in June 1964, with a 1,200 metres (3,900 ft) runway. The runway was lengthened to its present 1,800 metres (5,900 ft) length in October 2002 to permit operations by jet-powered aircraft. From August 2008, All Nippon Airways (ANA) began daily services to Haneda Airport in Tokyo. New Central Airservice began operations to Chofu Airport from 2009. ANA ended service to Oshima in October 2015.[4] Since 9 July 2021, Oshima Airport has been called Tokyo Oshima Camellia Airport (東京大島カメリア空港, Tōkyō Ōshima Kacmeria Kūkō) as nickname.[2][3]
