A Chinese woman in her 20s preparing to board a flight out of Japan passed through airport security checks and subsequently failed to board her flight on Feb 4, it was revealed Monday. Police said that it is not possible to legally exit the airport after passing through the security inspection; therefore they believe she may have illegally exited via a restricted area.
According to the immigration office, the woman had been working as a trainee in Tokyo. She had been booked on a flight to Shanghai on the afternoon of Feb 4 but failed to board the flight. A woman fitting her description was captured by a CCTV camera in the Terminal 2 train station. According to police, the only ways she could have exited the airport were to have slipped back through the security area or to have used a staff exit.© Compiled from news reports
