Emirates halts all flights to Osaka, Japan

The storm was heading north across a swath of Japan's main island of Honshu toward the Sea of Japan.

Domestic airlines have made a decision to cancel local and global flights mainly scheduled to depart and arrive in airports in western and central Japan.

Japan is regularly struck by major storms during the summer and autumn.

Jebi follows Typhoon Cimaron, which made landfall on August 23, disrupting transport links, but injuries and damages were limited.

A powerful typhoon slammed into western Japan on Tuesday, causing heavy rain to flood the region's main worldwide airport and strong winds to blow a tanker into a bridge, disrupting land and air travel and leaving thousands stranded.

The damage to the bridge left the artificial island temporarily cut off, stranding 3,000 travellers and additional staff overnight.

A tanker smashed into Kansai Airport Bridge, which connects the mainland in Osaka Prefecture to the airport, at 14:40pm (local time) according to the Japan Coast Guard, leaving thousands of people stranded.

Yamaji Kota of Toshiba Corp.'s memory business said the company generally relied on Kansai airport to send memory chips to assembly plants in China and Taiwan, but because of the typhoon, it was switching to other airports.

"I'd never expected this extent of damage from a typhoon". Chief Cabinet Secretary Yoshihide Suga said at least 10 people were confirmed dead and about 300 people were injured.

Prime Minister Shinzo Abe, in a series of tweets, hailed the relief operations and said the government will "come together to make every effort to urgently deal with the disaster and restore infrastructure".

Local media said more than a million households were left without power by the storm, and evacuation advisories were issued for almost 1.2 million people, though only another 16,000 were under stronger - though still not mandatory - evacuation orders.

Shilei Zheng, a Chinese student, said that China Southern Airline changed her flight to Kansai on Wednesday to a later one to Tokyo for free, but she still had to cancel her hotel reservations and amend her itinerary.

Economists said it was too early to gauge the storm's impact on local industry, with much depending on how long the airport remained closed.
