All papers reported extensively on the continued closure of Kansai International Airport on Wednesday due to the severe damage caused by Typhoon Jebi. The papers underscored that since the airport will probably remain out of service for the immediate future, local governments and businesses are worried that the prolonged closure will have adverse effects on the local economy by affecting inbound tourism and disrupting shipments of cargo such as semiconductors, machinery, and pharmaceuticals. One of the airport’s two runways might be able to start accommodating flights again in about a week, but there are no prospects in sight for the resumption of the use of the other runway.
