The operator of typhoon-hit Kansai International Airport in Japan has reopened part of its main passenger facility, Terminal 1. More than 120 flights will be handled at the terminal on Friday.
Terminal 2 resumed service last Friday using Runway B. The building mainly hosts operations for budget airlines. Storm surges caused by Typhoon Jebi largely spared that terminal even though most of the airport was flooded on September 4th.
YOKOHAMA--The Minato Mirai waterfront district here will become even more bustling in spring 2019 with the opening of a new passenger ship terminal, which aims to attract additional foreign cruise ships.
Ocean liners including luxury Diamond Princess are scheduled to arrive at and depart from the terminal about 80 times annually as their home port in Asia.
