An Air China flight headed for Beijing made an unplanned landing in the central Chinese city of Zhengzhou on Sunday.

According to the Civil Aviation Administration of China (CAAC), a man carrying a fountain pen threatened to harm Air China staff members on board the plane, forcing the aircraft's pilots to take action. Passengers and crew were unharmed.

An Air China flight was diverted after an attendant was held hostage with a fountain pen.

The flight had taken off at 8:40 am from the city of Changsha in Hunan province and was scheduled to land in Beijing at 11 am. It said only that "the matter was successfully handled" by 1:17 pm but did not provide any details. A woman passenger told The Xiaoxiang Morning Herald that on looking outside the window of the plane, she notices many police cars, ambulances and fire engines parked at Zhengzhou airport.

Chinese police said the 41-year-old passenger arrested in the incident had a "history of mental illness", the news agency reported.

But it made the unscheduled landing at Zhengzhou Xinzheng International Airport, in central Henan province, at 9:58am, according to an earlier post on Air China's official Weibo microblog.

The Zhengzhou airport said in a statement that it immediately activated emergency measures, adding that the passengers who disembarked were in a stable mood and that the airport was operating normally.
