BUSAN, April 3 (Yonhap) -- An Air Busan plane bound for Cambodia from South Korea's Busan made an unscheduled landing on Jeju Island after its weather radar malfunctioned, airport and airline officials said Sunday.

The low-cost carrier's A321-200 plane with about 180 passengers and crew left Gimhae International Airport at 8:05 p.m. for Cambodia on Saturday but detected an unusual signal demanding a checkup of its weather radar 1 1/2 hours later, the officials said.

After deciding to turn around, the plane landed at Jeju International Airport at 11:20 p.m., they added.

The Air Busan jet plans to resume its scheduled flight Sunday morning after replacing the defective radar, they said.
