Watch Full Video: Japan flight emergency landing: Is there any explosives found? Explained

After an alleged bomb threat, a Jetstar Japan airline was forced to make an emergency landing in Japan. Let’s examine the emergency landing of the Jetstar airplane in greater detail.

Jetstar flight emergency landing: The flight, which was supposed to leave from Tokyo, was instead diverted to Chubu Airport, where people were taken to safety while a number of them sustained injuries.

A budget airplane operated by Jetstar made an emergency landing in central Japan on Saturday after authorities received what seemed to be a bomb threat from an international caller, according to state broadcaster NHK, which cited police sources.

NHK reported that a guy in Germany called at 6:20 a.m. Japan time to say that he had hidden a bomb on the aircraft, citing police sources.

According to a representative for the airport, the domestic aircraft from Narita to the southwest Japanese city of Fukuoka was rerouted to Chubu airport.

NHK said that at that time, all 136 passengers and six crew members disembarked from the aircraft. At least five of the passengers, according to NHK, who saw people utilizing emergency chutes to leave the aircraft, sustained minor injuries.


What took place? Has anything explosive been found?
Social media posts show an Airbus A320 operated by Jetstar with its chutes deployed and its passengers being evacuated all around it.

The caller allegedly said they had planted 100 kilograms (220 pounds) of plastic explosives, according to NHK. The caller said there were explosives in the cargo hold of the aircraft and threatened to detonate them if “management” didn’t speak with him.

The plane was compelled to land right away after receiving the call, and its passengers were removed.

NHK reports that no bombs were found inside the aircraft. According to a representative for the Chubu airport, flights at the facility have resumed after a four-hour interruption, and the incident is being investigated.

According to a Jetstar Japan spokeswoman, the plane landed normally at 7.41 am local time “following a potential security situation.”

Passengers used emergency slides to exit the ship out of an abundance of caution. We appreciate the passengers’ cooperation because we are aware that this would have been upsetting for them. In order to investigate the situation, Jetstar Japan is coordinating closely with Chubu Airport and the local authorities.
