Japan snow storm halts flights

8 Feb 2014 by ReggieHo

The most severe snow storm in more than a decade has hit Tokyo and other areas in Japan, having caused two fatalities and injured 90 thus far in snow-related accidents. A heavy snow warning is issued in Tokyo, the first for the Japanese capital in 13 years. Flights leaving to or departing from both Narita and Haneda may be affected. Thirteen centimetres of snow has fallen and according to weather forecast, conditions will worsen with up to 20 centimetres of snow expected. 

ANA warns that NH151 from Haneda to Singapore today is experiencing severe delay, and the same might happen to the following flights tomorrow (February 9):

NH1006 Haneda-Los Angeles (LAX)
NH173 Haneda-Bangkok Suvarnabhumi
NH1062 Haneda-Honolulu
NH203 Haneda-Frankfurt

All travellers bound for or leaving Tokyo today, tomorrow or in the next few days should check with their airlines the updated status of their flights before heading to the airport.
