An Air India Express flight from Dubai went out of the main taxiway while approaching the parking place from the runway after landing at the Mangaluru International Airport at about 6 p.m. on June 30.

V.V. Rao, director of the airport told The Hindu that all passengers and crew are safe. All of them have been disembarked from the flight.

Now the aircraft will be towed to the parking place (apron).

The aircraft might have entered the unpaved strip (grassland) due to high speed, he said adding the exact reason is yet to be ascertained.

The director said the incident did not hamper normal aircraft operations at the airport.
