An Air France jet made an emergency landing Monday at Tokyo’s Haneda Airport, and a government source said its passengers included at least one foreign dignitary attending Emperor Naruhito’s enthronement ceremony.

No injuries were reported as a result of the landing around 12:20 p.m. of Flight 272, a Boeing 777 plane traveling to Haneda from Paris with 323 passengers and crew, according to the transport ministry.

The plane reported a drop in the tire pressure of its main landing gear prior to landing, the ministry said, adding it was able to touch down without incident.
