OKA Airport Overview

To help you plan your layover or overnight sleepover, here is a quick run-down about what to expect during your time at Okinawa Naha Airport.

What to Expect

okinawa airport guideOkinawa Naha Airport (code: OKA) serves both military and commercial purposes. Commercial flights are handled by three terminals: the Domestic Terminal, the LCCT Terminal extension, and the International Terminal, which opened in 2014. Head to Floor 4 to find several eateries, then browse the shops on Floors 2 and 3. WiFi is free in the departures areas. For added comfort while you wait, economy class passengers can pay to enter an airport lounge. See Airport Lounges in the guide below for location and access information.

Where to Sleep

We do not yet have any sleep-related airport reviews.  Have a backup plan if you’re planning to spend the night.  For uninterrupted sleep, Day Rooms rents resting rooms landside in the Domestic Terminal. Other hotels are nearby. See our Airport Hotels section below for more info or read some traveller airport reviews for more tips.

Covid-19 Update

Due to the current Covid-19 pandemic, all services and times listed below are subject to change. Some services and facilities may remain closed or operate with reduced hours.  Airport tips and suggestions in this guide and elsewhere on the site were written before March 2020 and may no longer be valid. If you are planning to sleep in the public area of the terminal overnight, have a back-up plan! We’ve heard from a few travellers at other airports and they were not permitted to stay overnight. We’re not sure if that will apply to this airport, until a reader lets us know the current situation. We will start updating all of our guides in October 2021.  To help us with this massive update, you can add or update information or write a review and submit photos and airport tips.

For more airport information continue scrolling down to explore more in our Naha Airport Guide.

In this guide we may refer to locations as “landside” and “airside”. Landside is the public area of the terminal located in the non-secure zone, before security. Airside is the secure area of the terminal that you must reach by going through security.  For more information on Europe’s Schengen Area, click here.
