Emirates halts all flights to Osaka, Japan

DUBAI, September 5, 2018

Dubai-based Emirates has suspended all flights to Osaka, Japan, after the strongest typhoon to have hit Japan in 25 years made landfall, said a report.

The storm, which brought heavy rain and winds of up to 172kmph, has already claimed six lives and caused injuries to 160 others. Japan officials have ordered more than a million people to evacuate their homes amid warnings of high waves, flooding and mudslides, said a report in Khaleej Times.

“Customers are advised that due to Typhoon Jebi, all flights into/out of Osaka Kansai International Airport on September 4 and 5 have been cancelled due to the airport closure and heavy flooding," the report cited an Emirates spokesperson as saying.

"Customers connecting onto affected flights to Osaka will not be accepted at the original point of departure until further notice," the spokesperson said.
