Misawa Airporti is an airport in Misawa in the Aomori Prefecture. It shares facilities and airport codes with the Misawa Air Base.

History:
An Imperial Japanese Navy Air Service base was established at Misawa in 1941, and nearby Lake Ogawara was reportedly
one of the locations used by the Imperial Japanese Navy to practice for the attack on Pearl Harbor due to its shallow depth.
The base was heavy bombed by the United States Navy in 1945, and subsequently occupied by the United States after
the surrender of Japan at the end of World War II.
The first Misawa Airport was opened in January, 1952, with Japan Airlines providing scheduled services to Tokyo and Chitose
Airport in Hokkaido. However, commercial operations were suspended from March, 1965 due to pressure from the United
States, citing safety and security concerns, and flight operations were transferred to nearby JMSDF Hachinohe Air Base. Misawa
Airport reopened in May, 1975, with a new terminal building completed in 1977; the terminal was expanded and rebuilt in 1986.
Initially served by Toa Airways with McDonnell Douglas DC-9 and MD-80 aircraft to Tokyo (Haneda), Sapporo(Chitose), and
Osaka Itami, operations were upgraded to Airbus A300 aircraft after Toa Airways became Japan Air System in 1988. These
flights were taken over by Japan Airlines after its acquisition of Japan Air System in 2002. However, with the opening of
Tohoku Shinkansen to Hachinohe in December 2002, the number of passengers has decreased and equipment changed back
to the MD-80. Flights to Chitose were discontinued in 2007.

As of August 2019, there are three flights to Tokyo ( Haneda ) , one flight each to Osaka ( Itami ) and Sapporo( Okadama ), daily.
