South Korea orders inspection of Asiana A320 pilots after plane skids off runway

SEOUL (Reuters) - South Korean authorities said on Wednesday they planned an "urgent competence inspection" of Asiana Airlines pilots flying Airbus A320 planes, the day after one of the planes skidded off a runway in Japan.

South Korea's Yonhap news agency said the measures would affect 489 pilots, 370 of them with Asiana and the remainder with its low-cost subsidiary, Air Busan. The two airlines are the only operators of the A320 based in South Korea.
