CHIBA Ė Narita International Airport closed one of its two runways for several hours Monday after an Air Canada plane entered the wrong taxiway after landing.

It took more than five hours before passengers were able to begin disembarking the Boeing 787 aircraft from Montrealís Trudeau International Airport, which mistakenly entered the taxiway and stopped there at around 3:45 p.m. The taxiway is under construction.

The plane was carrying about 210 passengers and crew members, according to the transport ministry. There were no reports of injuries.

Among the passengers were members of Japanís national menís underwater hockey team, returning home after taking part in the world championship in Canada.

ďI was worried because the in-flight announcement was difficult to understand and it wasnít clear when the situation was going to end,Ē said the teamís coach, Kazuhiko Saito.

The plane was stranded on the taxiway alongside the airportís Runway B. It was later towed by vehicles after steel sheets were placed on the rough road surface.

Due to the closure, Jetstar Japan canceled six domestic flights while some planes were forced to divert to different airports, the airportís operator said.

The runway was reopened at about 10 p.m.
