Airlines scramble to get travelers out of Tokyo

Airlines on Wednesday hustled to get passengers stuck at Tokyo's airports out of quake-stricken Japan, while aid organizations said the city is safe for international travelers.

Last week's earthquake and tsunami has transformed parts of Tokyo into a ghost town as people either stay indoors or leave.

France and Austria urged their citizens in Tokyo to leave the country or head to southern Japan. The French embassy in Tokyo said it had asked Air France to mobilize planes for the evacuation of French nationals from Japan, and two were already on their way.
