HANEDA AIRPORT's preventive measures for COVID-19 and requests for all passengers
Measures against COVID-19
At Haneda Airport, we are working together with the Ministry of Justice, the Ministry of Health, Labour and Welfare, the Ministry of Land, Infrastructure, Transport and Tourism, and other relevant agencies and airport operators to take measures against COVID-19.
We are making use of our website, social media, posters, digital signages, etc., to promote awareness among passengers. We have installed hand sanitizing stations inside the terminals, and have in-terminal announcements and posters that encourage preventive measures from infections, such as handwashing, wearing masks, and proper cough etiquette.
In addition, we routinely inform passengers that individuals with symptoms such as fever will not be allowed to board an aircraft and request all passengers wear a mask via terminal announcements.
How to use airport facilities safely
In the interests of health and safety, we ask all passengers to cooperate with the items below.
