Initially, surveyors proposed placing the airport in the village of Tomisato: however, Tomisato residents refused to give up their land, so the site was moved 5 km northeast to the village of Sanrizuka where the Imperial Household had a large farm, the government therefore had less difficulty to place the planning airport.
Recently, Tokyo International Airport was allowed to have other international flights within Asia, as well as to Hawaii, in an attempt to alleviate Narita's problems with capacity.

In 1954 Bahrain's position as the major airport in the region was further enhanced with the establishment of a new Flight Information Region based in Bahrain to cover the navigation of aircraft in transit through Gulf airspace.
Even with the new expanded airport facilities it quickly became obvious that further expansion would be needed to accommodate these "jumbo peaks." A further expansion phase of the airport was completed in 1976, just five years after the opening of the new passenger terminal.
Further expansion of the airport's facilities took place in the early eighties as a prelude to the major expansion and refurbishment programme that was completed in March 1994.

Aliuddin, director general of Pakistan's Civil Aviation Agency, said an agreement to open Karachi international airport to the U.S.-led coalition is likely to be signed soon.
But the move to open the international airport in Pakistan's southern port city also appeared to compensate the United States for recently reduced access to an important military airbase and to draw Washington closer at a time of high tensions with India.
It is expected that the old Karachi airport will be reserved for the Americans who fly sorties from their warships in the Gulf, and supplement these efforts through a base in Pakistan which has a long border with Afghanistan.
