At least three people were injured when a plane carrying more than 170 passengers reportedly skidded off a runway in western Indonesia, causing the airport to shut down.
The Airbus A320 Citilink flight travelling from Jakarta to Padang bounced when it hit the ground, according to a spokesperson of the country’s transportation ministry. The airport had to be closed as the plane was blocking the runway.
Citilink is a budget airline of PT Garuda Indonesia Tbk.
