Air India Express Boeing 737 flight plane skids off Mangaluru airport runway

Mangaluru Air India Express 814 flight ran over runway guiding lights while landing at Mangaluru International Airport around 5 am on Sunday.

According to the official, an internal enquiry has been initiated after the flight IX 814 hit "some guiding lights" of the runway after landing at Mangaluru airport damaging them.

Air India Spokesperson Dhananjay Kumar told in New Delhi that the initial enquiry report has not confirmed that the guiding lights were damaged by AI IX 814 flight.

In May 2010, an Air India Express plane from Dubai had overshot the runway and plunged down the cliff into a wooded valley, killing 158 people.

The flight was reportedly carrying 185 people - including two infants - when the incident took place. "Post arrival inspection of the aircraft revealed no damages".

"At the time when the aircraft was about to touch down, there was a sudden gust of the wind and heavy rain".

Air India Flight Safety Department has set up the enquiry into the incident. "According to the initial report, the aircraft did not skid", the official said.
