The operator of Narita airport said Thursday it will cut landing fees for new international and domestic flights for two years starting in April, in a bid to better compete with airports in other parts of Asia.

The promotional incentives will apply to new services launched by airlines that already use the airport as well as newcomers, said Narita International Airport Corp.

The airport operator plans to offer a maximum 50 percent cut in landing charges in the first year and a 25 percent discount in the second year.

Combined with the airport’s current discounts launched in April 2013, first-year charges could be completely free, depending on cases, the operator said.
