As part of the appointment, Travelport will promote the airport and its connected destinations to a global network of travel agents.
Chubu Centrair International Airport is the main international gateway for the Central (“Chubu”) Region of Japan, serving a key metropolitan area of the country centered around the city of Nagoya.
