Korean Air 737 overshoots runway in Japan

A Korean Air Boeing 737-900 with 115 passengers has overshot the runway on landing at an airport in Japan.

No injuries were reported among the 106 passengers and nine crew in the incident at Niigata airport.

The aircraft, on a service from Incheon in South Korea, came to a stop on a grass verge beyond the end of the runway.

At least 19 flights into Niigata airport were cancelled this morning while an investigation by Japan’s National Transport Safety was instigated.

The incident is the second in a month involving a South Korean airline.

An Asiana Airlines flight crash-landed in San Francisco on July 6, killing three people and injuring dozens.
