Gulf Air plane veers off runway at Kochi airport



Kochi: At least seven passengers were injured as a Gulf Air plane from Bahrain with 137 passengers veered off the runway as it was landing at the international airport and went into a muddy area, damaging its nose wheel here early on Monday.

One person, who suffered fractures, has been hospitalised while six other passengers with minor injuries were discharged after first aid, airport sources said.

As the nose wheel has been damaged, recovery was taking time due to which the runway has been closed for 10 hours, Airport Director ACK Nair said.
