Jetstar’s new home at Nagoya Chubu International Airport: Terminal 2

Last Updated: 26/06/2019 07:58 AM

Jetstar domestic and international flights at Nagoya Chubu International Airport will operate from newly opened Terminal 2 from 20th September 2019. Jetstar check-in will also be at Terminal 2. Terminal that Jetstar flights currently operating will be renamed to Terminal 1 upon Terminal 2 opening.

Passenger Service Facility Charge
All passengers who use Nagoya Chubu International Airport are charged a fee by the airport, known as the Passenger Service Facility Charge (PSFC). This charge is paid by Jetstar who, in turn, pass it on to passengers by including it in their fare for flights departing from Nagoya Chubu.

International departure
Current /  Adult 2,570 yen Child 1,290 yen
New / Adult 1,280 yen Child 640 yen (Terminal 1 / Adult 2,570 yen Child 1,290 yen)
Child charge applies to passengers 2 – 11 years old. Infants who don’t occupy seat are exempted from charge. Child charge applies if infants occupy seat.

As a result of Jetstar moving to Terminal 2, the fee charged by the airport is lower than that charged for Jetstar’s international passengers using Terminal 1. Passengers who have booked international tickets before 25th June 2019, for travel departing Nagoya Chubu from 20th September 2019 onwards, may obtain a partial PSFC refund, which is the difference between the Terminal 1 and Terminal 2 PSFC charges. Eligible passengers may claim this refund by contacting to the Jetstar contact centre via
Live Chat

Domestic PSFC will remain as it is currently until farther notice.

Please check
Nagoya Chubu International Website for detail.
