Speech from Airbus regarding the injury involving Japan Airlines Flight JAL516
Japan Airlines ( JAL ) Flight JL 516 from Shin Chitose, close to Sapporo, Hokkaido may have collided with a Japanese Coast Guard aircraft and caught fire while crash-landing at Haneda Airport, according to eTurboNews’ earlier today report. All 379 passengers on this crowded local JAL flight, according to reports, were safely evacuated.
Only now, on January 2, 2024, Airbus issued an official declaration regarding the JAL Flight 516:
” Airbus regrets to confirm that an A350-900 operated by Japan Airlines was involved in an accident on flight JAL516 from Sapporo New Chitose Airport to Haneda International Airport shortly after 17 :47 ( local time ) on January 2, 2024.” The plane was evacuated by all 367 travellers and 12 staff members on board.
When the A350 touched down in Haneda, it collided with a DHC- 8 aviation. Unfortunately, five of the six passengers on board the DHC- 8 did not survive, according to Chinese officials. The incident’s precise situation are still a mystery.
MSN 538, which was involved in the accident and had the registration range JA13XJ, was delivered to Japan Airlines on November 10, 2021. Rolls-Royce Trent XWB machines were used to power it.
Airbus will offer technical support to the Japan Transport Safety Board (JTSB ) in charge of the investigation as recommended by the International Civil Aviation Organization ( ICAO ) Annex 13 and the Bureau of Enquêtes et d’Analyses ( BEA ) of France. Airbus is currently sending a team of experts to help the Regulators with this goal.
As soon as consolidated data is accessible and Airbus has the go-ahead to relieve it, new improvements will be made available.
Our thoughts and sympathies are with the families, friends, and loved ones who have been impacted by the crash.
After a Japan Airlines fall at Tokyo Haneda Airport, 379 people are secure.
