Sendai Airport First international charter flight launched after the Great East Japan Earthquake

仙台空港とハイフライ航空 エアバスA340-300

Sendai Airport has lost all functions due to the tsunami caused by the Great East Japan Earthquake on March 11, 2011.
It was said that passenger planes would not be able to arrive and depart for several years, but on April 13, 2011, temporary flights became available only one month after the earthquake.

On June 23, 2011, it was restored until the first international charter aircraft became available after the Great East Japan Earthquake.
On that day, Airbus A340-300 of Hi-fly, an international charter flight to Milan, Italy, took off from Sendai Airport.

Most functions remain disabled at the Sendai Airport passenger terminal.Passengers are not boarding from the passenger boarding bridge, but boarding the plane from a passenger stepcar.
Since all fences around the airport were destroyed by the tsunami of the earthquake, the runway was operated using only temporary protective fences using piles and wires.

High Fly Airlines is a charter-only airline based in Lisbon, Portugal. It caters to a wide range of aviation needs, from wet leases to comprehensive travel charters.
The aircraft is the Airbus A340-300, a wide-body jet airliner developed by Airbus for long-haul routes.
The most distinctive feature is that four engines capable of flying at sea are installed under the main wing in times when twin-engine flying at sea is not permitted.
