Ninety five passengers and crew of a Jorhat-Guwahati-Kolkata flight had a miraculous escape when the aircraft skidded off the runway at Rowriah airport in Jorhat.

“All the passengers and crew of the Jet Konnect flight number 7048 are safe and were brought down from the aircraft unhurt,” said Pravakar Mishra, station director of Airport Authority of India (AAI) based at Rowriah Airport.

 

 

The Jet Konnect flight after landing at the airport at 1.45pm was taking the first right turn on the runway to the parking bay when it skidded off it, after one of its rear wheels got stuck to the ground, he said.

The flight was cancelled for technical investigation and the passengers were accommodated in local hotels, the airport authority officials added.
