Plans for a new airport for Ishigaki airport have existed in different forms since 1979, but traction gained in the early 2000’s, and after community opposition, a compromise was made on the plans and construction started in 2006. The airport opened 7 years later in 2013, and featured a 2000m (6562 ft) long runway, being able to fit larger modern jets. Today, the airport serves eight different destinations on seven carriers, the largest being All Nippon Airways.
