Glasgow flight crashes off runway


A plane carrying British holidaymakers from Glasgow Airport skidded off a runway after landing in the Canary Islands today, but there were no injuries, airline Air Europa said.

The Boeing 737-800 ‘experienced an extended landing at 06:23 on wet runway 21, stopping on the tarmac at the end of the said runway,’ at Arrecife airport on the island of Lanzarote. Its 74 passengers left the plane ‘in the normal manner’ and were taken to the terminal, ‘with no injuries or material damage having been caused,’ the airline added.

The plane was chartered by Thomas Cook. A spokesman for the holiday company said: ‘We can confirm that an Air Europa flight (AEA196), which was chartered by Thomas Cook, was involved in a runway incident at Lanzarote's Arrecife Airport this morning.'

‘Thomas Cook staff were on hand at the airport to assist all passengers and can confirm that all guests are now en route to their holiday hotels. We have called on Air Europa and the airport authorities to provide a full explanation.’
