A runway at Kansai International Airport reopened Friday, after being closed for 10 days due to flooding caused by a powerful typhoon earlier this month.
The major international hub, which sits on a man-made island in Osaka Bay, plans to resume around 40 domestic and 80 international flight services, equivalent to around 30 percent of the airports's pre-typhoon traffic.
Typhoon Jebi passed through western Japan on Sept. 4, bringing storm surges that flooded one of the airport's two runways and the No. 1 terminal building used by most airlines. The terminal typically serves about 400 flights daily.
