Public Transport at Narita Airport Resumes after Typhoon Chaos

Public Transport at Narita Airport Resumes after Typhoon Chaos

   Narita, Chiba Pref., Sept. 10 (Jiji Press)--Bus and train operations from Narita International Airport near Tokyo resumed in full swing on Tuesday morning, a day after powerful Typhoon Faxai disrupted traffic in the greater Tokyo area.
   Users who stayed overnight at the airport formed long lines at bus and train ticket counters.
   Some transport operations restarted on Monday evening, but were not sufficient to deal with arrivals from in and outside the country.
   At a peak at midnight Monday (3 p.m. GMT), about 17,000 people were stranded at the airport, and some 13,000 stayed the night.
   The airport's operator distributed water, crackers and blanket rolls to users, but there were many people sleeping on the floor without the blanket rolls or sitting on the benches.
