DORTMUND, Germany, July 16, 2020 /PRNewswire/ -- Tokyo International Airport (HANEDA), Japan's fastest growing airport by passenger numbers, has increased its capacities through new terminal extensions. The 4th biggest airport in the world commissioned the Japanese provider Toyo Kanetsu K.K. (TKK) and the German provider Materna IPS (Intelligent Passenger Solutions) with the provision of a unique self bag drop solution at the Terminal 2 international facilities and in Terminal 3.
