TAYLOR Swift's presence at an airport caused flights to be delayed.

The 'Blank Space' hitmaker touched down at Narita International Airport, close to Chiba, Japan ahead of her '1989' world tour dates in the country and was greeted by so many fans that it caused delays in the airport's arrival hall.

Two flights coming into Narita International Airport were delayed as a result of Taylor's popularity, gossip website TMZ reports.

A video of the 25-year-old singer's arrival shows a crowd of fans reaching out to try and touch the star, waving their smartphones and cameras in the air.

Taylor desperately tries to sign a few autographs for the loyal supporters despite being ushered away by the airport security.

The 'Shake It Off' hitmaker is known for rewarding her loyal fans and recently, she granted the wish of a dying fan by speaking with her for 20 minutes.

Jalene Salinas - who was suffering from an aggressive form of terminal brain cancer and has since passed away - got her dream come true in March this year.

Speaking to Jalene's mother Jennifer Arriagas during the phone conversation, Taylor said: "I got back from London and I heard about her and it's just unfathomable to have to watch your baby go through this."
