A China Eastern Airlines aircraft on Monday carrying 133 passengers from Kunming to Guangzhou had an “accident” in the region of Guangxi and caused a fire on the mountains, Chinese state television reported.
The jet involved in the accident was a Boeing 737 aircraft and the number of casualties was not immediately known, CCTV said. Rescue was on its way, it also said.
Shanghai-based China Eastern Airlines is one of China’s ‘big three’ state-owned airlines.
It operates a fleet of Airbus and Boeing aircraft to support an extensive network.
