Kansai International Airport Has 6 Fun, Free Transit Offers

Check out our Top Rewards Cards to boost your points earning and travel more!

Kansai International Airport (KIX) serves Osaka, Kyoto, Nara and more. Osaka’s historic neighbors are well-known to tourists and I consider Osaka itself highly underrated. My wife and I will be stopping there later this year on a trip to the onsen of Kinosaki.

Researching airport connections we see that KIX is trying hard to raise its profile as a transit hub for leisure travelers to Asia. They have 6 offers for passengers transiting 24 hours or less and with Japan visas or nationalities not requiring Japan visas:

  1. ¥1,000 coupon available in the passenger terminal
    (*This coupon may not be applied to certain shops/restaurants.)
  2. 60 minutes free ticket of KIX AIRPORT LOUNGE and REFRESH SQUARE
  3. Airport explorer bus tour
  4. One day free ticket of Sky Shuttle Bus(to/from Rinku-town)
  5. Coupon booklet available in Rinku Premium Outlets
  6. Special coupon of hot spa in Rinku Pleasure Town SEACLE

See the brochure for more info.

Also, passengers transiting between KIX and Osaka International Airport (ITM) can get free limousine bus service between the two airports.
