A China Southern Airlines Airbus A319-100, flight CZ-6199 from Hangzhou to Guangzhou (China) with 105 passengers, was climbing out of Hangzhou when what was identified as heavy smoke initially developed in the forward cabin of the aircraft prompting the crew to return to Hangzhou for a safe landing. The passengers disembarked normally via mobile stairs.

The smoke, that had led to reports of an aircraft fire in China, was identified as mist originating from the air conditioning system as result of a malfunction.

A replacement Airbus A319-100 registration B-6408 reached Guangzhou with a delay of 10 hours.
