BEIJING (AFP) - Chinas Henan province has ordered Henan Airlines to change its name following a deadly crash this week to prevent the disaster tarnishing the provinces image, state media reported on Saturday. The decision by the northern provinces Administration for Industry and Commerce to revoke the use of Henan in the commercial carriers name comes after late Tuesdays crash in northeastern China killed 42 people. Official Xinhua news agency quoted the administration saying the accident had cast an extremely adverse impact on the province, which has no interest in the company. The Brazilian-made Henan Airlines regional jet crashed in heavy fog while attempting to land at the airport of Yichun city in Heilongjiang province near the Russian border, with 54 passengers and crew surviving the fiery disaster. The plane was manufactured by Brazils Embraer. It was Chinas first major air disaster in six years. China has ordered nationwide checks of its fast-growing civil aviation fleet of 1,300 planes in the wake of the disaster. Authorities have launched an investigation into the cause of the accident in the remote, heavily forested region. But it will be some time before the probe is finished, due to the need for a thorough investigation, Xinhua quoted a top civil aviation saying on Saturday. The results will have to withstand the test of time and history. We therefore need more time for that, said Li Jian, vice director of the General Administration of Civil Aviation (CAAC). Henan Airlines was previously known as Kunpeng Airlines until a September 2009 name change triggered by the carriers relocation of its headquarters to Zhengzhou, capital of Henan. The name change order will need to be approved by national authorities, Xinhua said.
