Ex­ec­u­tive re­moved over air­port in­ci­dent

China Daily (Hong Kong) - - CHINA -

A Shang­hai Air­lines flight division man­ager was re­moved from his post on Tues­day af­ter a pas­sen­ger air­craft slid off an icy taxi­way at an air­port in Urumqi. The nose wheel of the air­craft skid­ded off the taxi­way due to the frozen ground and im­proper op­er­a­tion at Urumqi Di­wopu In­ter­na­tional Air­port. The run­way was shut down af­ter the in­ci­dent and re­opened at 2 pm that day. A China South­ern Air­lines air­plane also veered off the run­way half an hour later af­ter the first in­ci­dent. Nei­ther in­ci­dent caused in­jury or dam­age.
