KARACHI: A charter plane with 18 people on board crash-landed at Karachi’s Jinnah International Airport on Friday, Express News reported.
Two people were reportedly injured in the incident.
Reports suggested the plane had to make an emergency landing as soon as it took off.
Rescue teams and Civil Aviation Authority (CAA) officials arrived at the scene and the runway was closed.
In November last year, a Lahore-bound Shaheen Air flight, carrying 121 passengers and crew members, made an ‘emergency landing’ at the Allama Iqbal International Airport.
It was initially reported that at least 10 passengers received ‘minor’ injuries when the plane landed due to a burst tyre; however, the Civil Aviation Authority (CAA) denied the claims, saying all passengers remained unhurt and that flight NL-142 landed at the airport and shortly afterwards went off the runway.
A medical report revealed the pilot was intoxicated and fatigued at the time of landing.
