NHK said that the threat had been reported to the police and that the emergency landing forced Chubu Airport to briefly prohibit takeoffs and landings.

Jetstar Airways owns a portion of sibling airlines Jetstar Asia Airways and Jetstar Japan, which are owned by Qantas, Japan Airlines, and Tokyo Century Corporation.

After a potential security incident, a Jetstar Japan flight from Tokyo (Narita) to Fukuoka was diverted to Chubu Airport and landed normally at 7:41am local time this morning.

Passengers disembarked by emergency slides out of an abundance of caution. We recognize that this would have been upsetting for travellers and appreciate their cooperation.

Our teams are assisting them and attempting to get them moving as soon as possible. Jetstar Japan is also collaborating closely with Chubu Airport and local authorities to examine the incident.
