Fukuoka Airport - FUK - is an international and domestic airport. Fukuoka Airport is located with great area of Fukuoka in Hakata Ward.

Fukuoka Airport (Japanese: 福岡空港) is an international and domestic airport in Fukuoka, Japan. Its IATA Airport Code is FUK. It is currently operating at full capacity, and cannot be further expanded. Flights stop at 10 pm.

The airport is conveniently located for Fukuoka residents in Hakata Ward, South-East of the city centre. It is connected to the rest of the city by subway and road, and a subway from the airport to the business district takes less than ten minutes.

With Fukuoka's expanding role as a hub for business and travel in East Asia, Fukuoka City is considering moving the airport further inland or to an offshore artificial island to accommodate increased traffic. However there is some debate as to whether a new airport is really needed, given the cost, the environmental problems and the nearby New Kitakyushu Airport which is now under construction.
