There is a Sapica card issued in Sapporo but it’s only usable in Sapporo. The JR Hokkaido-issued card is a Kitaca. It is interchangeable with all the main IC cards (Suica etc.). I assume you can get Kitaca cards at the airport.

Thanks Tony, this is great info. Arriving in Sapporo from Nagano it looks like a Kitaca card will be great for Sapporo-Otaru-airport travel.
