A limited number of domestic flights will operate from Osaka’s Kansai International airport on 7 September, three days after major flooding caused it to close.

Kansai airport says that Peach will operate six departures and 11 arrivals from the airport, commencing from 11:50 local time, while Japan Airlines will operate a single flight to and from Tokyo Haneda.

All Nippon Airways advises that its domestic flights to Osaka Kansai remain cancelled until 9 September, while some international services may resume from 8 September.

Trains to the airport have not yet resumed, and access will be limited to passengers who will have to use shuttle buses.

Kansai airport was inundated by storm surges caused by the approach of Typhoon Jebi on 4 September. Ground links to the airport, which is built on a man-made island in Osaka Bay, have been affected after the same storm front caused a ship to slam into the side of the causeway that links it to Izumisano.
