An emergency team at Supadio International Airport in Pontianak, West Kalimantan, hauled a Lion Air plane back onto the runway on Sunday after it skidded off on Saturday (Feb 16) afternoon.
The management had to close the airport following the incident. No casualties were reported.
Sulkarnaini, an officer in charge of the airport, said the plane skidded 30 meters off the runway, as quoted by Antara. The process of hauling the plane back onto the runway was made more difficult because rain on Saturday had made the soil soft.
On Sunday morning, the management postponed eight arrival and nine departure flights to and from the airport.
