On December 14, 2013, an Azul Linhas Aereas Embraer with 98 aboard was en route from São Paulo to Uberlândia-Eduardo Gomes Airport when it made a landing on wet pavement and suffered a runway excursion skidding on to soft grass. There were no injuries reported.

According to Sergeant Ramos, emergency services assisted.

The accident closed the airport pending removal of the plane. There was no damage to the Embraer 195, which operated the flight AD 6913, and Azul’s reports stressed that there were no injury to any of the 93 passengers and five crew members.

Subsequently on the 14th, after heavy rain was recorded, the Civil Defense of Uberlândia asked the population to avoid going through critical points referred to in the city due to possible flooding.
