A Thai Airways plane carrying more than 280 people skidded off the runway while landing at Bangkok’s main airport.
Fourteen passengers were injured in the accident – the second mishap in less than two weeks for Thailand’s national carrier.
“After touchdown at Suvarnabhumi Airport, the landing gear malfunctioned and caused the aircraft to skid off the runway” said the president of the airline Sorajak Kasemsuvan. “The captain took control of the aircraft until it came to a complete stop and passengers were evacuated from the aircraft emergency exits.”
The airline said on its Twitter account that the 14 injured passengers were sent to hospitals.
