It’s incredible that just a couple of people can cause such problems that dozens of passengers are affected but that’s exactly the case a Naha Airport in Okinawa Japan this week. It seems that three tourists from China managed to get into secure areas of the airport without first going through the security check points. In response all the security gates were shut down for an hour, which then went on to cause flight delays throughout the entire airport.
