As a place once used for airplane takeoff and landing in SendaiMiyagi field,Kawauchi OimawashiAnd so on. In 1933 (Showa 8), in the southeast of Sendai city areaMinistry of CommunicationsThe Sendai Airfield under its jurisdiction was established.Sendai Airfield was a stopover for regular flights between Tokyo and Sapporo[24]..This airfield was requisitioned by the expeditionary forces after the war, and then the Ground Self-Defense ForceKasumime GarrisonIt became.

On the other hand, in 1940 (Showa 15),Natori-gunTamaura VillageとShimomasuda VillageThe Army has set up an airfield in the area that straddles the area, and hereKumagai Army Flight SchoolMasuda branch school education corps was placed[24][25]..This airfield was requisitioned by the expeditionary forces after the war and then returned to Japan in 1956 (Showa 31).Ministry of TransportとDefense AgencyBecame a jointly managed area of[24]..This airfield was called Sendai Airfield[26]..The following year, in 1957 (Showa 32), the regular route connecting Sendai Airport and Tokyo International Airport (Haneda) was transported by Japanese helicopter (later).All Nippon Airways) Was established. In 1962 (Showa 37),Japan Air Self-Defense ForceHas moved from this airfield and has become a facility under the sole jurisdiction of the Ministry of Transport. In 1964 (Showa 39),Airport maintenance lawBased on the designation of Type XNUMX Airport, the name was changed to Sendai Airport at this time.[24].

As of 1964 (Showa 39), when it was established as Sendai Airport, Sendai Airport had one 1200-meter runway.Around this time, Japan was in a period of high economic miracle, and due to the increase in aviation demand, Japan was also in an era when aircraft materials were becoming larger and jets were being used.In response to this, runways were constructed all over Japan.The Ministry of Transport formulated the "First Airport Development Five-Year Plan" in 1 (Showa 1967), which resulted in the development of a 42-meter runway at Sendai Airport.This 2000-meter runway was newly constructed separately from the old runway, and at Sendai Airport, the old A runway and the new B runway, a total of two runways coexisted. Runway B was completed in 2000 (Showa 2), and in that yearJetIn service to Sendai Airport[27].

In 1981 (Showa 56), the total number of passengers at Sendai Airport was about 150 million.However, when the Tohoku-Hokkaido Shinkansen opened temporarily between Omiya Station and Morioka Station in 1982, the number of Sendai Airport users began to decrease, and in 57 (Showa 1985) the Shinkansen went to Ueno Station. After the extension, the number of users dropped further.Comparing the required time and fare, the aircraft was disadvantageous and the railroad was advantageous for traveling between Sendai and Tokyo.As a result, All Nippon Airways' Sendai / Haneda flights were abolished in 60 (Showa 1985).[28].

The runway was made 2500 meters during the period from Showa to Heisei. Formulated by the government in 1987 (Showa 62)Fourth National Comprehensive Development PlanThen,Tokyo extreme concentrationThe purpose was to disperse to rural areas and to make the land multipolar.Among them, the expansion of the functions of regional airports was included for internationalization, and Sendai Airport was targeted.Under these circumstances, there was a move toward the launch of regular international flights to Sendai Airport.At that time, Sendai Airport had international charter flights, but no regular international flights.

I asked.Asiana Airlines responded to this by launching regular flights between Sendai Airport and Gimpo International Airport in South Korea in 1990 (Heisei 2).After this, regular flights from Sendai to Guam, Singapore, Hong Kong, Dalian, etc. continued.[29]..The 2500-meter runway was completed in 1992, and in commemoration of this, All Nippon Airways and Japan Airlines each flew with a Boeing 4.[26].. From 1996 (Heisei 8) to 1997 (Heisei 9), the new passenger terminal building was put into service, and in 1998 (Heisei 10), Runway B became 3000 meters.[30].. In 2007 (Heisei 19), the Sendai Airport Line, which is an airport connecting railway, opened.[25].
