New Tanegashima Airport (新種子島空港 Shin Tanegashima Kūkō) (ICAO: RJFG), also known as Tanegashima Airport,[2] is located in Nakatane, on Tanegashima, one of the Ōsumi Islands in southern Kagoshima Prefecture, Japan.

The original Tanegashima Airport was opened on July 27, 1962 at a site approximately 8 kilometres (5.0 mi) southeast of the present airport. Although its runway was extended from 1,100 m (3,600 ft) to 1,500 m (4,900 ft) in 1973, it was not suitable to handle jet aircraft, and was closed on March 16, 2006, the day that the New Tanegashima Airport, with a 2,000 m (6,600 ft) runway was opened.
