Airbnb hosts at the international terminal in Osaka are in for a shock.
According to the Osaka Airport, all hosts with an Airbnb account have been banned from entering the airport.
The news comes after the Japan Airports Agency (JAA) reported that all Airbnb hosts had been banned for violating rules governing air travel.
Airbnb hosts have been prohibited from entering Japan’s international terminal due to their illegal activity.
The JAA stated that all hosts violating the rules will be banned from the airport and banned from using Airbnb.
It’s unclear what impact the ban on Airbnb hosts has on Japan’s airport operations.
According the JAA, the agency did not receive any complaints about the ban, but it did receive a number of tips from hosts about being banned from accessing the terminal.
Airport officials did not immediately respond to a request for comment.
Airports in the U.S. and Canada have also taken a hard stance against illegal hotels, banning them from operating at their respective airports.
Airline groups including AirTran and AirAsia also recently announced they would be ending their business with hotels at international airports in the United States.
