3.11 Sendai Airport, which was damaged by the tsunami due to the Great East Japan Earthquake, was restored on April 13, 2011 in just one month.
Sendai Airport has become the base of US military operation Tomodachi that helped restore the affected areas and rescue victims.
It was said that it could not be used for several years due to the damage of the Sendai Airport passenger terminal due to the earthquake.
Thanks to the hard recovery activities, the plane recovered to a level where commercial airliners could land, and a temporary flight to Tokyo International Airport, which normally does not have regular flights, was launched.
On the first day of recovery, a Boeing 737-800 operated by JAL Express, a consolidated subsidiary of Japan Airlines, entered service.The flight is operated as a special flight with the [Ganbarou Nippon] logo on the aircraft registration JA302J.
