A budget airliner operated by Jetstar made an emergency landing in central Japan on Saturday after authorities received what appeared to be a bomb threat from an international caller.

A guy in Germany called Tokyo’s Narita airport at 6:20 a.m. Japan time and claimed to have planted a bomb on the plane.

An airport spokeswoman informed Media that the domestic flight from Narita to the city of Fukuoka in the south-west was diverted to Chubu airport.

Another media outlet stated that all 136 passengers and six crew members got off the plane at that point.

According to Media, which transmitted video of passengers using the emergency chutes to exit the plane, at least five persons suffered minor injuries while doing so.

Pictures posted to social media show passengers being evacuated around a Jetstar Airbus A320 with its chutes deployed.

Media said that the caller threatened to detonate 100 kilograms (220 pounds) of plastic explosives if the “manager” didn’t speak with him or she, citing police sources.

The caller claimed to have placed the explosives in the cargo hold of the aero plane. According to Media, no bombs were discovered on board the aircraft.

Flights at the facility have resumed after a four-hour halt, according to a spokeswoman for the Chubu airport, and the event is being looked into.
