Travellers to Japan have been warned of the potential for disruption to flights in the days following the arrival of Typhoon Hagibis as All Nippon Airways (ANA) and Japan Airlines (JAL) cancel services to Tokyo this weekend.
The majority of flights to and from Tokyo’s Haneda and Narita airports have been cancelled on 12 October, when Typhoon Hagibis is expected to cause the most disruption. In addition, both ANA and JAL have cancelled services to and from Nagoya Chubu and Osaka Kansai, with the former also suspending operations at Osaka Itami.
Many domestic services within Japan have also been suspended, with passengers advised to check with their airline on the status of their flight.
For those already in Tokyo, public transport is likely to be disrupted. The Foreign and Commonwealth Office said officials for the Ruby World Cup taking place in the city have advised visitors to stay indoors and avoid travelling if possible on Saturday.
Flights are likely to experience continued disruption on Sunday because aircraft will be in the wrong locations following Saturday’s cancellations. Passengers are advised to check with their airline before departing for the airport.
