All broadcasters except TV Asahi led with reports that Prime Minister Kishida told the press this morning that the Transport Ministry’s instructions to airlines on Wednesday to stop accepting reservations from all passengers, including Japanese, for international flights to Japan in response to the spread of the Omicron variant overseas have caused public confusion. Kishida said he has now instructed the ministry to adequately take into account Japanese nationals’ wishes to return to Japan. Chief Cabinet Secretary Matsuno separately told reporters that the ministry suspended today the instructions for the blanket suspension of reservations and told airlines to give adequate consideration to Japanese nationals who wish to return home. TV Asahi gave top coverage to snowfall in Tohoku and Hokkaido.
