Terminal building

Airport terminal buildingIs 3 stories above ground.It is operated by the "Iwate Airport Terminal Building," which is funded by local governments and operating companies.

As the old terminal building became narrow and it became difficult to handle international charter flights during times of congestion, a new terminal building was planned to be constructed on the east side of the runway to accommodate the entry of large passenger aircraft.However, due to financial difficulties in Iwate Prefecture and a decrease in users, the completion of the new terminal building, which was originally in 2007, was postponed for two years, and the scale of the building and site was reduced, and then April 2, 2009. The service has started.The terminal building isNational Route 4Since it was not directly connected to the main road like the old terminal facing the main road, the prefectural road that provides access to the main road is also being developed at the same time.

Old terminal building

In the old terminal building era, only one boarding bridge was originally installed, but a spot dedicated to medium-sized aircraft was added to the south side to accommodate the launch of medium-sized aircraft.This spot was also compatible with small aircraft, and it was possible to use a boarding bridge even when regular flights boarded at the same time.In addition, because the apron was located lower than the passenger entrance, parking lot, parking lot, etc. of the building, the airline counter, boarding waiting room, baggage claim, arrival gate, product sales space, etc.Police stationThe main functions of the airport were consolidated, and there was almost no need for passengers to move up and down the floor inside the building. The office of a restaurant and building company is on the second floor. On the XNUMXrd floor (rooftop), there was a small exhibition space for materials related to aircraft and a shuttle deck.

Currently, it is being reused as the "Hanamaki City Exchange Center", and has the Hanamaki City Tourism Association, Hanamaki City Tourism Division, Hanamaki City International Exchange Office office, sightseeing flight passenger waiting room, etc., as well as the former boarding waiting room and baggage. The complaint has been converted into a tourist information corner, an exchange space that can be rented to the general public, and a training room.

The building that was used before the opening of the old terminal building was located on the north side of the control tower, and is used as an office for Toho Air Service and North Japan Airlines.The remnants of the control room remain on the roof.

Topographical history

Japanese archipelagoIt has been on land since before the formation ofKitakami Mountains,Abukuma HighlandsUnlike the Ou Mountains, it is a relatively new terrain.The place corresponding to the Ou MountainsSea of ​​JapanIt was on the seafloor during the expansion period (about 2500 million years ago to about 1500 million years ago), and although volcanic activity continued after that, it was below sea level.[2].

It became land about 800 million years ago.The compressive pressure that continues to this day causes the volcano to rise while bending, creating reverse faults on both sides, and the volcanoes that were active in parallel increased in altitude while creating a large-scale caldera.[3]..Both sides of the mountain range were initially the sea, but after millions of years, they landed, and the basins and lowlands that exist today are now connected.[4].
