Kansai Airports is delighted to announce that the ITAMI Runway Walk will be held at Osaka International Airport (ITAMI) on July 1, 2023.
This is our fourth runway walk event at ITAMI. It aims to give an opportunity to local elementary and junior high school students to get familiar with ITAMI and deepen their understanding of the operation and safety management of the airport and aircraft through the experience of walking on the runway. In the event, participants will have a chance to walk on the runway, take photos, and watch water spraying by fire engines at the airport fire station. Kansai Airports Group will continue to deliver various fun events and information to attract more visitors to the airport.
