A China Airlines plane was forced to make an emergency landing at an airport in western Japan on Wednesday after it ran out of fuel, an airport official said. The Taiwanese jet was on its way from Taipei to an airport in central Japan, but its pilots requested a landing at Kansai International Airport, saying the plane had insufficient fuel to complete its journey, according to airport official Maki Yamanaka. The plane landed safely at Kansai shortly before 9 p.m., and there were no reports of injuries to the passengers or crew, Yamanaka said. Yamanaka could not immediately say how many people were on board. The plane was refueled and was expected to take off shortly for Chubu International Airport, its intended destination, Yamanaka said.
