Narita Airport Company will establish new task force next month to resolve labor shortage. Demand for international flights has rapidly recovered following the coronavirus pandemic.

A lack of manpower has resulted in the airport being unable to accommodate some requests for new flights or increased flights. In five years, when the third runway is completed and the number of passengers is expected to increase, it is estimated that approximately twice the amount of employees will be needed. The task force has set up a website dedicated to promoting jobs to those looking for work.
