Ministry of Land, Infrastructure, Transport and Tourism & Japan Tourism Agency

The Ministry of Land, Infrastructure, Transport and Tourism has compiled emergency measures in response to the collision accident between a JAL aircraft and a Japan Coast Guard plane on Runway C at Haneda Airport on January 2.

The cornerstone of the emergency measure package includes: (1) thorough instruction on basic operations to air traffic control agencies and aviation operators, (2) strengthened surveillance system by air traffic controllers, (3) pilots’ thorough external monitoring, visual assistance, (4) strict adherence to runway entry rules, and (5) enhanced communication among relevant parties.

Instructions were issued to air traffic control agencies and aviation operators to ensure thorough basic operations. Personnel to monitor for misentries onto runways via radar on a constant basis will be positioned. Measures include applying high-luminance paint to stop sign positioning before runway entry, ensuring pilots are fully aware of control tower terminology, and clarifying control instructions. An emergency meeting regarding communication between controllers and pilots will also be held.
