Narita International Airport/Tokyo International Airport/Fukuoka Airport/Kansai International Airport/New Chitose Airport
●Heads-up on the return of unused slots(Timing of the action)

●In the event that a misuse of slots (Operation without an allocated slot, operation at a significantly different time from the allocated slot , inappropriate return of slots, etc.) is identified, the airline will be interviewed and required to return the slots immediately.
Depending on the result of the interview, Civil Aviation Bureau establishes a corresponding policy on the subject event prior to allocation of slots for the next equivalent season, and takes measures as needed.
