Notice regarding Traffic Restrictions when Foreign Head of States visit Japan between October 19-October 26

Thank you for your patronage of the JAL Group.

 

Foreign state officials plan to visit Japan between October 19-October 26, 2019. During this period, security will be enhanced and traffic restrictions are expected within the metropolitan areas. High volume of traffic is expected on October 22 and October 23 as foreign state officials will be visiting the area.

 

Since September 13, airport security has been enhanced at Haneda, Narita, and other domestic airports in Japan where the check-in process may take longer than normal.

 

Visitors planning on traveling through the airports are strongly recommended to travel by public transportation and to allow ample time to avoid delays due to  traffic congestion.

 

Flights departing from and arriving at Domestic airports may be delayed or canceled due to operations of government aircraft from each country. Please check “Flight Information” on JAL's website in advance. Flight information for your flights may be viewed from the day before departure for domestic flights and 2 days prior for international flights.

 

On 21 Oct 2019 and 24 Oct 2019, due to operations of government aircraft from each country, fight connection at Haneda and Narita will take longer for one or two hours than usual. Extra hours for your connection would be recommended.

 

We appreciate your understanding and cooperation.
