A Boeing 737-800 operated by Pegasus Airlines has skidded off the runway and snapped into three pieces at Istanbul’s Sabiha Gokcen airport.
The aircraft flown by the low-cost carrier was set to arrive at Istanbul’s Sabiha Gokcen airport after taking off from the Turkish city of Izmir. It then suffered a “rough landing,” the Turkish Transportation Ministry said.
In a statement, Pegasus Airlines said the plane “experienced a runway excursion after landing at Istanbul Sabiha Gökçen Airport. There have been no fatalities, and our injured passengers have been taken to hospital. We will continue to provide further information with regards to the incident.”
