Japan earthquake travel disruption

Article content

14 March 2011

According the BBC news, Tsunami warnings have been lifted for mainland Australia and New Zealand. China, Indonesia and the Philippines lifted their tsunami alerts after Taiwan and the US territory of Guam also said the threat of the massive waves had passed.

Warnings remain in place for several countries including Mexico, Guatemala, El Salvador, Costa Rica, Nicaragua, Panama, Honduras, Chile, Ecuador, Colombia and Peru.

Initial reports from Hawaii say the island chain has been spared any major damage by the tsunami.

In Japan there is widespread transport disruption, widespread power-cuts and disruption to water supplies and temporary shortages of supplies to shops throughout the affected areas. Aftershocks are still occurring very frequently. There is currently no public transport to or from the airports in Tokyo.

Virgin Atlantic has said it has not made a decision on whether its daily London-Tokyo service will operate on Saturday or Sunday, while British Airways is scheduled to operate one flight to Narita and one to Haneda on Saturday.

Passengers travelling to Japan this weekend should continue to check the status of their flight with their airline.
