Narita Terminal 2 Departure

March 2014


On my previous two trips to Tokyo, I flew on Delta and this meant flying in and out via Narita’s Terminal 1. The last time around only this February, we decided to take Philippine Airlines, which uses Terminal 2 along with most other Asian airlines. Here’s a few photos I was able to take at the terminal.

2014-02-23 15.36.44Terminal 2 is also a huge terminal and serves as the hub for Japan Airlines (JAL).

2014-02-23 15.36.47The many information boards provide up to date info on inbound and outbound flights out of Narita Terminal 2. Many refer to the boards for info on which counters to go to for checking-in for flights.

2014-02-23 16.43.26After going through immigration, passengers are greeted by more shops and cafes. Of course, there are always information boards to provide updates on flights. In many large airports, it is not uncommon for flight to change gates so passengers should always check if they are still boarding at the same gate provided to them upon check-in.

2014-02-23 18.05.48Pre-departure area for our flight – our plane was actually parked somewhere in the wide tarmac of the airport and we were to be transported by bus from the terminal to our plane.

2014-02-23 18.27.47A bus transported us to our plane. 

2014-02-23 18.27.56This meant we would have to use the stairs to board the aircraft.
