    A plane travelling on the ground (for example, from the terminal to the runway) is called taxiing.

    To taxi for a plane is to run on the tarmac from the gate to the runway for takeoff in the case of a departing flight, or, after landing, from the runway to the gate. The flight taxied at xx hour means that the flight either left the gate at xx hour or that it started its taxi from the runway to the gate at xx hour
