Hello everybody, welcome to the 5th part of the trip to Asia. This report will cover the domestic flight from Fukuoka to Nagoya. Spending three days in the Kyushu area, I flew back to Nagoya to catch the connecting flight back to Hong Kong.

Part2: ZRH → HKG: LX138: Here!
Part3: HKG → NGO CX538: Here!

After I left the Hotel, I took a bus to Hakata station. From there I took the Fukuoka Kuko Line metro to the airport. It was extremely convenient as the airport is just two stations away.

We arrived the airport at 9:42am. ANA's checkin counters are located at the first floor of domestic terminal. At first we proceeded to the domestic flight counter, but once we showed the international ticket to Hong Kong, the staff asked us to go to the neighboring international connecting flights counters. We were really surprised that our luggages can be delivered directly to Hong Kong, despite ANA and Cathay are not in the same alliance.

Boarding pass was given not only for this domestic flight to Nagoya, but also the connecting flight to Hong Kong. The BP showed that my flight will be departing from gate 4. Actually this flight was operated by ANA's subsidiary ANA Wings.

Then I quickly visited the observation deck on the 4th floor for a while.
