Lion Air plane skids off runway Gorontalo airport closed after.

The low-cost airline from Lion Air Group expressed an apology for the aircraft that skidded off the runway at Djalaluddin Airport, Gorontalo, last night.

“We are sorry for the inconvenience,” said Lion Air’s Corporate Communications Strategic Danang Mandala Prihantoro in a press release on Sunday, April 29.

As many as 174 passengers and crew on Lion Air with flight number JT 892 have been evacuated and survived. While two passengers who were fainted have been brought to the hospital for further medical treatment.


As the report suggested, Boeing 737-800 aircraft slipped off the strip while landing at 18.35 local times. The airline took off at 17:29 local times from Sultan Hasanuddin International Airport, Makassar, South Sulawesi (UPG).

Gorontalo’s Djalaludin Airport was closed for 16 hours on Sunday, following an accident in which a Lion Air plane skidded off the runway, to allow emergency crew to remove the plane from the runway. No casualties were reported in the incident, but two people had fallen unconscious after the accident. The measure to close the airport was taken because part of the body of the ill-fated plane still lay on one side of the runway, said Power, adding that the aircraft would be cleared from the runway on Monday. Power said he had coordinated with relevant agencies, including the airport authority in Manado and the National Transportation Safety Committee (KNKT).
