Dumna airport remains closed following mishap
Dumna airport remained closed after a Spicejet aircraft with 53 people aboard skidded off the runway while landing last evening and ran into bushes on the periphery.
The flight was being operated on a Bombardier Q400 plane.
The airline's pilot Amartya Basu diverted the plane towards the left of the runway to moderate the impact.
"Damage to the aircraft is still being assessed, however all the 49 passengers and 4 crew members are absolutely safe," said the airline in a statement.
