Possible Flight Delays due to Air Festival at Chitose Air Base

Thank you for your patronage of the JAL Group.
Chitose Air Festival will be held at JASDF’s Chitose Air Base at August 4 (Sun) and several rehearsals are planned as following. During this period, flights departing from and arriving to Sapporo’s New Chitose Airport may be delayed due to the restriction of airspace around the airport.

Also, visitors planning on going to Sapporo’s New Chitose Airport are strongly recommended to allow more time for traveling to the airport to avoid the possible traffic congestion or shortage of parking lots.
