Qatar Airways’ Flight Lands ‘off-centred’ On Kochi Runway


A Qatar Airways’ Kochi-bound Airbus A330 aircraft carrying 306 passengers from Doha landed “off-centred” on runway due to adverse weather conditions today morning, damaging 12 runway lights. However, all passengers were safe, a Cochin International Airport Limited (CIAL) spokesperson said.

Two flights – a Dubai-bound FlyDubai and an Emirates’ flight for Kochi – were delayed due to the incident, which is being investigated by the Directorate General of Civil Aviation (DGCA), the CIAL said in a statement.

Qatar Airways cancelled the return leg of the flight and accommodated all passengers on other flights, it added. The airline confirmed the incident, saying the aircraft “skidded” during landing roll due to heavy rain and water on the runway, damaging a few runway lights. Read More
