Qatar Air­ways state­ment

Gulf Times - - QATAR -

Qatar Air­ways yes­ter­day said its flight QR516, trav­el­ling from Doha to Kochi, In­dia, skid­ded dur­ing “land­ing roll” due to heavy rain and water on the run­way at the Kochi air­port, dam­ag­ing a few run­way lights. The air­craft tax­ied nor­mally to the stand, the Doha-based car­rier said in a state­ment on Twit­ter. Due to this in­ci­dent, the re­turn flight from Kochi to Doha – QR517 – was can­celled, the air­line in­formed, adding that “all pas­sen­gers are ac­com­mo­dated on later flights”. “Qatar Air­ways is fully co-op­er­at­ing with local au­thor­i­ties. The safety and se­cu­rity of our pas­sen­gers is our top pri­or­ity,” the state­ment noted.
