China Airlines (CAL), Taiwan's largest air carrier, said Sunday that seven flights between Taiwan and Japan could be delayed or cancelled the following day to the effect of a tropical storm.
The airline said flight CI017 from Tokyo Narita International Airport (NRT) to Taiwan Taoyuan International Airport (TPE), and flights CI100/CI101 from TPE to NRT and vice versa could be affected.
It said flights CI220/CI221 from Taipei Songshan Airport (TSA) to Tokyo Haneda International Airport (HND) and vice versa could be affected.
In southern Taiwan, the airline said flights CI102/CI103 from Kaohsiung International Airport (KHH) to NRT and vice versa could also be affected.
As of 5 p.m. Sunday, Tropical Storm Mindulle, the ninth to form in the Pacific this year, was centered some 260 kilometers south of Japan's Hachijo-jima Island, moving north-northwest at a speed of 40 kilomters per hour, according to data from the Japan Meteorological Agency (JMA).
It will probably make a landfall on Japan's Honshu Island somewhere southwest of Tokyo around Monday noon, according to the JMA forecast.
