Aeroplane skids off runway

A Jetstar Airbus A320 slid off the runway Thursday at 7am at Siem Reap airport, said Khek Norinda, spokesman for Societe Concessionnaire de l’Aeroport (SCA). The plane was carrying 139 passengers and six crew. After touchdown, the plane travelled 400m before veering off the runway. “Passengers did not seem to realise the incident and no injuries,” Khek Norinda wrote. Civil Aviation officials will investigate the circumstances of the incident and JetStar engineers had been dispatched to replace two damaged tyres.
