Flights to Sapporo
Sapporo serves as the main transport hub of Hokkaido. Understandably, it needs more than just one air travel facility to deal with all the tourist and traveler influx. The city's air transportation needs are served by two airports: Okadama Airport (IATA: OKD, ICAO: RJCO) and New Chitose Airport (IATA: CTS, ICAO: RJCC).
Okadama Airport is intended for regional flights within Hokkaido.
