On July 15, the Ministry of Land, Infrastructure, Transport and Tourism (MLIT) announced that it has designated eight airports as facilities where the flight of small unmanned drones is illegal, based on the revised drone regulation law. Airport administrators and police officers can use radio waves to obstruct drones that may adversely affect aircraft operations. The revised law will be implemented on July 22. The airports designated are: Narita, Haneda, Kansai, New Chitose, Chubu Centrair, Osaka (Itami), Fukuoka, and Naha. In principle, drones will be prohibited from flying on the grounds of the above airports. They will also be prohibited from flying in the skies above an area within 300 meters from the airports.
