The flight was scheduled to depart from Tokyo, but was diverted to Chubu Airport, where passengers were evacuated, with several suffering injuries.

According to public broadcaster NHK, which cited police sources, a budget airliner operated by Jetstar made an emergency landing in central Japan on Saturday after authorities received what appeared to be a bomb threat from an international caller.

According to NHK, who cited police sources, the phone came in at 6:20 a.m. Japan time from a man in Germany indicating in English that he had planted a bomb on the plane.

An airport spokesperson informed that the domestic flight from Narita to the city of Fukuoka in the southwest was diverted to Chubu airport.

NHK stated that all 136 passengers and six crew members got off the plane at that point. NHK, which showed passengers using emergency chutes to exit the plane, said that at least five of them suffered minor injuries as they did so.

According to NHK, the caller claimed to have planted 100 kilograms (220 pounds) of plastic explosives.  Caller said explosives are in the aircraft’s cargo hold and demanded to talk with the “management” or he would explode them.

Following the call, the airplane was forced to land immediately and the passengers were evacuated from it.

According to NHK, no bombs were discovered on board the aircraft. Flights at the facility have resumed after a four-hour halt, according to a spokesperson for the Chubu airport, and the event is being looked into.

The jet “after a potential security incident” landed normally at 7.41 am local time, according to a Jetstar Japan spokesperson.

“Out of an abundance of caution, passengers disembarked via emergency slides. We know this would have been distressing for passengers and thank them for their cooperation. Jetstar Japan is also working closely with Chubu airport and local authorities to investigate the situation.”
