An ATR42-600 of Japan Air Commuter, operating JAC/3X3830 from Kikai to Amami, suffered runway excursion while landing at runway 03 of Amami. The aircraft veered off the runway for 15 meters, and the nose landing gear was stuck in the mud, causing the ATR disabled. Three crew members and 18 passengers disembarked from the plane by door steps without injuries. The sole runway was closed until 23:10 LT. At the time of the incident, strong cross wind blew on the airport.

This serious incident occurred when the aircraft landed in a crosswind from the left, and immediately after landing, it deviated to the left.
It is presumed that the correction was delayed, causing the aircraft to deviate from the runway and come to a halt in the grass, rendering it unable to run on its own.
