An As­tra Air­lines pas­sen­ger plane went off the run­way at Thes­sa­loniki’s Mace­do­nia Air­port on Satur­day but there were no in­juries. The air­plane, which was ar­riv­ing fol­low­ing a flight from Rus­sia, over­shot the run­way. It was not clear what had caused this to hap­pen. None of the 160 pas­sen­gers on board was in­jured. As­tra Air­lines be­gan op­er­a­tions in July 2008. It flies to a num­ber of Greek is­lands from Thes­sa­loniki.

Huub of ac­tiv­ity.

For­mer PSV Eind­hoven and Schalke 04 coach Huub Stevens has agreed to take over as the new man­ager at Greece’s PAOK, the Thes­sa­loniki club an­nounced on Fri­day. PAOK, who fin­ished sec­ond in the Su­per League and clinched a spot in the Cham­pi­ons League via a play­off sys­tem, said that the deal with Stevens would be fi­nal­ized in the next few days and the 60-year-old Dutch­man would be of­fi­cially un­veiled. “We are very sat­is­fied that a coach of Huub Stevens’s stature has agreed to lead PAOK to a bet­ter fu­ture,” the club’s pres­i­dent Zi­sis Vryzas told PAOK’s web­site. “He be­lieves in hard work and dis­ci­pline and has many suc­cesses in top leagues to show for.” Stevens has won sev­eral ti­tles in his coach­ing ca­reer, which be­gan in 1993. He claimed the UEFA Cup in 1997 with Ger­man out­fit Schalke, with whom he also won two Ger­man Cups in 2001 and 2002. More re­cently, he led PSV Eind­hoven to the Dutch Su­per Cup in 2009 and Aus­tria’s Red Bull Salzburg to the cham­pi­onship in 2010. “PAOK are a club rep­re­sent­ing hard work and I al­ways felt at home in such clubs,” Stevens told the club’s web­site. “I love work­ing and our goal is to help PAOK step to­ward the fu­ture.”
