Juneyao Airlines' flight DKH/HO1332 from Naha, Okinawa, Japan to Shanghai Pudong, China, operated by an A320-214, commenced takeoff roll on the runway 18 of Naha without ATC clearance. At the time of the incident, the runway was occupied by another aircraft of the Japan Coast Guard, Dassault Falcon 900MSA (JA8570, c/n 53), which was just going to taxi out to a taxiway after its landing. The Naha Tower had instructed to HO1332 to line-up and wait for departure. Juneyao plane took off without damage, and continued to Shanghai normally. Neither of 115 on board of A320 nor 5 on board of JCG aircraft received personal injuries.

It is highly probable that this serious incident occurred as follows: Without receiving a takeoff clearance from the Tower, the Aircraft A commenced a take-off roll on the runway where the Aircraft B, which had landed earlier, was still present on the runway; furthermore, although the Aircraft A had failed to hear the Tower’s instructions to stop immediately, it continued take-off roll.
As for the reason that the Aircraft A commenced a take-off roll without a take-off clearance from the Tower, it is somewhat likely that the PIC failed to make mutual confirmation of whether to receive the take-off clearance among the flight crew members and made a hasty judgment that they would have received it.
