TOEIC Lesson 43 (Haneda Airport Expansion) VIDEO Script, Questions and Answers:
John: What do you think about the new international terminal and runway recently opened at Haneda Airport. Apparently it’s going to really expand that airport’s capacity to handle international flights. I’m really looking forward to flying from there when I take trips to Europe in future; getting to and from Narita is such a drag.
Al: Well John, I think you’re out of luck there. You may not know, but Haneda has been handling international flights for some time now, but only to east Asia, mainly Korea and China. The new facilities are going to be used to boost this sector of the travel industry. I believe that there are going to be about 160 additional international flights daily, but none to Europe.
John: That’s a bit of a blow. Anyway, I wonder what it’s going to do for the local economy in Ota Ward. Maybe they’ll be major beneficiaries from the extra flow of foreign tourists and business people through the airport.
Al: Yes, I read in the Japan times that businesses in Ota are expecting to see quite a jump in trade as passengers arriving at Haneda take a short trip to see a part of Tokyo a little more traditional than Ginza or Roppongi Hills. They have assembled a group of “Cool Ota Ward Ambassadors”, long time residents in the area from various Asian countries, who will promote it as a short tour destination. What do you think of the idea?
John: Personally speaking, I always like to get away from airports and en route to my destination as quickly as possible. I wonder what there is to see in Ota Ward? Do you have any idea?
Al: Well, they say it’s a microcosm of old Tokyo, with many small workshops and restaurants, and it is host to a Chinese Restaurant famous for winged dumplings. Maybe that’s a little more suitable for Haneda than it’s Edo period themed food court.
