Some 11,721,673 people used the airport in the 2006, ranking 8th busiest in the nation. 273,874 tons of cargo was moved in 2005.

For the fiscal year ending in March 2009, the above figures have dropped considerably to 10.8 million passengers. Combined international and domestic cargo figures totaled just 162,000 tons for the same year, a dramatic drop that can be largely blamed on the substantially weakened manufacturing economy since the fall of 2008 in the Aichi region.
