TOKYO -- Nippon Cargo Airlines, Japan's sole dedicated airfreight carrier, began suspending all flights as of Saturday after errors were found in its aircraft maintenance records, sending customers scrambling for alternative transport options.
The subsidiary of marine shipping company Nippon Yusen grounded its fleet of 11 aircraft while it checks for other discrepancies in the logs. The investigation should take about a week, at a minimum, the carrier said Saturday. The suspension affects about 300 tons of cargo, or the equivalent carried by three jumbo jets.
