Up to 140 aircraft carrying foreign dignitaries are expected to arrive at Haneda and Narita airports later this month, sources familiar with the matter said Wednesday, when Japan holds a ceremony to proclaim the enthronement of Emperor Naruhito.

Representatives of more than 190 countries are scheduled to attend the emperor’s enthronement ceremony at the Imperial Palace on Oct. 22, with commercial air travelers likely to be affected — especially on Oct. 21 and 24 when many of the guests arrive and leave the country.
