In the Indian state of Kerala, an Air India Express plane had deviated from the runway on Friday evening when it landed at Calicut airport. More than 190 people, including the crew, were on board the crashed aircraft that took off in Dubai. At the time of the incident, it was raining heavily. The plane slid off the runway and plunged ten meters down a slope.
It is the worst passenger plane accident since 2010, when another Air India plane also slid off the runway.
