Philippine Airlines (PAL) has cancelled flights on Tuesday, Sept. 4, to and from Osaka Kansai in Japan, because of the temporary closure of Kansai International Airport and the closure of an access bridge as the city is being battered by super typhoon Jebi.
“All Philippine Airlines (PAL) flights to and from Osaka Kansai (Japan) are cancelled today, September 4, 2018, as strong wind and heavy rains from super typhoon Jebi caused the temporary closure of Kansai International Airport, which has been affected by flooding and a closure of the access bridge to the mainland.”
PAL said land transport to Kansai Airport from Osaka City has been disrupted after a tanker ship was blown by strong winds and hit the connecting bridge.
The flagship carrier said it will advise passengers on further updates on the status of the regular and/or replacement flights originally scheduled for today. It added that passengers of cancelled flights will be rebooked on the next available flights or replacement flights, or may choose to be rerouted via other suitable airports in Japan.
