A runway at Tokyo's Haneda Airport that had been closed since a fatal collision between a Japan Airlines plane and a Japan Coast Guard aircraft reopened on Monday.

The closure of Runway C, one of four runways at the country's busiest airport, following the Jan. 2 collision led to the cancellation of over 1,200 flights, affecting more than 200,000 passengers during the New Year holiday season.

The runway was reopened after the removal of the wreckage of the passenger jet and the completion of repairs.
