The transport ministry conducted an emergency on-site inspection of Japan Airlines’ facilities on Friday morning, following a series of incidents involving the company’s aircraft over the past seven months.

The probe, conducted under the aviation law, targeted daily operations pertaining to flight operations and safety management at company facilities near Tokyo’s Haneda Airport, including JAL's safety promotion headquarters. The inspection follows another emergency probe of the company in February.

"As a company, we take the series of unsafe incidents, as well as the fact that they led to the emergency probe, very seriously," a JAL official said following the investigation. "In light of the guidance from authorities, we will make company-wide efforts to restore confidence in our company."
