On March 29, the Ministry of Land, Infrastructure, Transport and Tourism (MLIT) launched the "Japanese Air Transport after the 2011 Tohoku-Pacific Ocean Earthquake" webpage, which provides information on the status of Japan's airports in the wake of the earthquake.

The MLIT set up the special page on its website to minimize the financial impact of the massive earthquake and the following accident at the Fukushima Daiichi Nuclear Power Plant as well as to spur a prompt recovery in aviation demand that has witnessed a temporary drop. The MLIT particularly wants to convey information on the page to foreign governments and airlines.

Information under the following categories is updated as circumstances change.

Messages from Overseas

Resumption of Regular Operations

Operational Status of Airports (Facility Status, Operation Hours, Electric Power Supply, Ground Access, Jet Fuel Supply, etc.)

The English version of the page was launched to supplement the Japanese on March 30, with Chinese and Korean versions to come soon after in order to provide information in four languages.
