This happened due to the closure of the runway at the Hiroshima Airport, where on Tuesday a passenger plane of the company Asiana Airlines made an emergency landing, reported TASS referring to representatives of the airport. Due to the cancellation of many flights about 5,000 people could not fly out of the airport. The exact date of re-opening of the airport runway was not announced.
