Passenger plane from China’s Taiwan makes emergency landing in Japan

A passenger plane from China’s Taiwan made an emergency landing Sunday at an airport in central Japan.

The China Airlines plane from Taipei was scheduled to land at Toyama Airport around noon, but failed to do so due to unstable air currents, according to Japan’s Land, Infrastructure, Transport and Tourism Ministry.

The pilot, after trying to land at Toyama Airport three times in vain, changed the direction and made an emergency landing at the Chubu Airport in Nagoya due to shortage of fuel, according to the ministry.

A total of 155 passengers and crew members were on board the plane, and none was injured.
