Emergency Brace Positions Recommended by the International Civil Aviation Organization (ICAO)

Thank you for your patronage of Japan Airlines.


As of April 1, 2020, we change the brace positions that we ask passengers to adopt in the event of an emergency recommended by ICAO. This is being done in accordance with instructions from the Japanese Civil Aviation Bureau, a division of the Japanese Ministry of Land, Infrastructure, Transport and Tourism (MLIT) .

The Scheduled Airlines Association of Japan has created a poster for air travelers that details the brace positions recommended by the ICAO.

Please click on the image below for further details on these positions.

  • The video and the Safety Instructions may vary depending on aircraft type.
