A China Airlines plane from Taipei made an emergency landing at Kansai airport in Osaka, Japan late on Wednesday, Kyodo News said, adding that no one was injured in the incident.

The Airbus A330 jet, carrying 163 people, made the emergency landing at around 8:40 p.m. local time (1140 GMT) because it was unable to land at its destination of Chubu airport in Aichi prefecture.

The plane made an emergency request to the Kansai airport five minutes before the landing. The Chubu airport closed its runway due to another plane's incident while the China Airlines plane was short of fuel at that time, the report said.

On Monday, a China Airlines Boeing 737-800 passenger plane burst into flames after landing at Naha airport of southern Japan's Okinawa prefecture. No one was injured. Investigations showed that the fuel of the jet was already leaking when the plane was taxiing to the parking apron.
