Korean Airlines Runway Excursion
A Korean Airlines Boeing 737-9B5 en route from Incheon Seoul S Korea to Niigata, Japan with 115 aboard (106 crew) suffered a runway excursion.
The plane came to rest mired in soft grass.
Passengers exited via mobile stairs on to the tarmac where a bus picked them up to take them to the gate.
The plane’s outbound flight has been cancelled but Nigata Airport traffic was not substantially disrupted.
The Korean Ministry of Land, Infrastructure and Transport will conduct a special inspection of Korean Air because “runway overruns are classified as a “serious incident” by the International Civil Aviation Organization (ICAO)”
