Kansai International Airport, operated since 2016 by VINCI Airports with its partner ORIX, inaugurated a new domestic area in Terminal 1. The first stage of the airport’s remodelling works, this new area improves passengers’ experience thanks to more functional commercial spaces, redesigned around new shops and restaurants celebrating the flavours of Kansai and a new lounge.
The second phase of work has already begun and will be completed in December 2023, with the opening of the new international area. It will improve passengers’ experience along their entire journey (check-in, emigration, shopping areas, boarding) while deploying new technologies to serve passengers.Supported by the Japanese government, these works are the most important ones carried out at Kansai International Airport since it opened in 1994. They enable VINCI Airports to support Japan’s tourism recovery and prepare the airport to become the “First Pavilion” of the Osaka Kansai World Expo in 2025.
“Delivering the first phase of the remodelling work at Kansai International Airport is a new stage in our partnership with the Japanese authorities. As Japan reopens its borders to travelers, VINCI Airports is committed to supporting the resumption of traffic and welcoming passengers in an efficient and user-friendly airport, showcasing Japan’s culture of innovation,” said Nicolas Notebaert, CEO of VINCI Concessions and president of VINCI Airports.
Brisbane Airport welcomes new tenant
Brisbane Airport Corporation (BAC) is excited to announce the development of a major warehouse facility at Brisbane Airport that will expand the footprint of national safety goods supply group, RSEA Safety. BAC is developing RSEA Safety’s new 3,900sqm facility within the Export Park precinct, which has become a critical logistics hub for major brands thanks to its unparalleled proximity to key air and road transport.
RSEA Safety’s development – expected to open next year – will feature a warehouse of approximately 3,500sqm of Net Lettable Area (NLA), an office of approximately 400sqm of NLA and 36 on-site car parking bays. It is located on a 9,854sqm site.
RSEA Safety Founder and Managing Director Brandon Chizik said the purpose-built facility would be an important addition to the company’s existing network of 78 superstores, six distribution centres and 28 embroidery facilities. “The location at Brisbane Airport provides us with the ability to access road and air transport quickly and efficiently to connect with our customers and stores around Australia,’’ Chizik said.
The new RSEA Safety warehouse in Export Park joins recent warehousing and office facilities for companies including Geodis, DHL, Bevie, Bonds Transport, and Direct Couriers.
