KIAC theme park to serve in-flight meals

The Yomiuri Shimbun

Kansai International Airport Co.'s (KIAC) observation hall will be renovated into an aviation theme park, the first of its kind in the nation.

KIAC plans to establish an amusement floor with a space navigation simulation ride, and a restaurant floor offering in-flight meals from different airlines. The observation hall will reopen on July 9.

Under the plan, the firm will refurbish a 2,000-square-meter area used for offices and an event space in the observation hall north of the runway and expand a parking lot. The park will cover three floors. The construction cost will be 250 million yen.

The park will feature a theater that simulates a journey through space 50 years in the future and reproduction of a full-size passenger cabin and cockpit where people can experience piloting.

The restaurant floor will offer various types of in-flight meals, including a meal served for first-class passengers and a light buffet menu, served by airline companies of different countries.

KIAC also will establish a shopping floor featuring aviation-related books, models and the products made specifically for the firm.

The firm built the observation hall in 1994 when the airport opened, but visitors have fallen yearly. It renovated the hall by replacing the floor with a wooden deck in July at a cost of 270 million yen and attracted 430,000 visitors in its first nine months.

KIAC hopes to attract more than 600,000 visitors a year. A company official said the firm had drawn up a plan to create a more enjoyable airport, adding that it hoped to attract local residents, besides ordinary passengers.
