plane makes an emergency landing in Japan

As a result of bomb threats on board, an emergency landing was enacted and at least five passengers were slightly injured while being evacuated from the Japanese airliner.

The Japanese news agency, “Kyodo,” reported that on Saturday, January 7th of 2023 a plane made an emergency landing at the Chubu Airport due to a bomb threat; however law enforcement ultimately discovered no explosives.

A passenger plane operated by the economic airline “Jetstar” made an emergency landing after 07:30 am on Saturday (Friday 22:30 GMT).

As the agency stated, “The plane began its journey from Narita Airport located close to Tokyo and was headed for Fukuoka Airport in southwestern Japan.”

Narita Airport received a call from a man from Germany at around 06:20 am, saying in English that he had planted a 100-kilogram plastic bomb in the cargo hold of a Jetstar plane, according to the same source.

The local authorities temporarily closed the runway, which delayed or canceled some flights, but the police were unable to find any suspicious items on the plane.

There were 136 passengers and 6 crew members on board.

According to Kyodo, at least 5 passengers were slightly injured while being evacuated from the plane, while no one was taken to hospital.
