Air Transport, being a fast and convenient mode of transport, people, commodity and businesses are carried across border to every corner of the world and is meant to contribute to global economic growth. Unfortunately, human traffickers deliberately use this speed and convenience for their criminal activities in smuggling their captive victims through the airports and transport on aircraft engaging in immoral trade.
Narita International Airport Corporation, to play it’s part in delivering the Global Goals in the UN’s SDGs and to be a sustainability practitioner, pledges to collaborate with the Ministry of Justice Tokyo Regional Immigration Services Bureau, Airport Police and the airlines operating at Narita Airport in the aim at ending human trafficking globally. We will carry out trainings for the airport workers to raise awareness so the people at our airport can sense, feel and act upon any signs of potential smuggling of human trafficking victims across our airport to prevent, save and end the ordeal of the people in captivity.
