Peach to resume all international flights at Osaka Kansai

Peach will resume all international services from Osaka Kansai International airport on 14 September, as more of the airport’s facilities recover from floods that hit it on 4 September.

The budget carrier has been operating limited domestic and international flights since 7 September, but will be the first airline to resume all international services from the facility.

Peach operated from Terminal 2, which is now fully operational, while partial operations at Terminal 1 are expected to be restored on 14 September.

All Nippon Airways is planning to resume some domestic flights from Terminal 1 between 14 and 17 September, but has yet to advise of its plans from 18 September onwards.

Japan Airlines’ flights to Kansai remain cancelled out to 14 September.

Foreign carriers are being allocated limited slots over the next few weeks, and as more facilities are cleared for operation, regular schedules will gradually re-commence.

In a presentation posted on its web site, Kansai airport says that by 14 September, runway A is expected to be operational, joining runway B which re-opened on 7 September.

Runway A was heavily impacted by flooding. In response, pump units have been working to remove the water. Additional sweepers were brought in from Tokyo's Narita International airport to clean the pavement.

The airport adds that 26 out of its 41 aircraft parking stands are expected to be in operation by 14 September, with the remaining closed stands located on the international north wing of Terminal 1.

All fuel infrastructure are operational, although some parts of the fuel tanker docking facilities are still under repair.
