Less than three weeks after a devastating typhoon flooded its main runway and terminal building — and damaged the only bridge connecting it to the mainland — Kansai International Airport resumed full operations on Friday.

Airport officials said Thursday night that 99 percent of pre-typhoon passenger flights would be ready to go Friday, including 169 international and 64 domestic flights. As of Friday morning, a total of 54 airlines were offering international flights to and from the airport in Osaka Prefecture.
