Kathmandu airport nearly sees another disaster: Plane skids off runway; none hurt

"All aboard are safe", Thakur said, adding that the cause of the problem was not immediately known.

Tribhuvan International Airport, the sole airport handling international flights from and to Nepal, says it will resume flight operations from 11:30 am today, nearly 12 hours after it closed the functioning. The plane with 133 passengers and crew bound for Kuala Lumpur was already travelling at 165 miles per hour and could not stop in time, overrunning runway 02 and coming to rest on the soggy grass beyond the threshold.

Nepali workers try to bring a Malaysian airliner back onto the runway at the global airport in Kathmandu on April 19, 2018, after it skidded off the runway following an aborted take-off.

Nobody was hurt in the mishap but several passengers were left stranded at the airport since the incoming flights were diverted.

There were 139 people, including four crew members, on board the aircraft, Boeing 737-900, registration 9M-LNJ.

Nepalese security forces examine the Malindo Air plane. TIA resumed flight operations after a suspension of over 12 hours.

"They deplaned us around 2:30 am and it was pure chaos".

Cars eventually took the passengers to hotels to wait for a rescheduled flight, she said.

The incident came a month after the crash of a US-Bangla Airways plane at Kathmandu airport, which killed 51 people.

In March 2015, a Turkish Airlines flight had also skidded off the runway at the Kathmandu airport, resulting the airport to remain shut for four days. Accidents are common and Nepal-based airlines are banned from flying in European Union airspace.
