(Stocksak). A Korean Air Lines Co Ltd aircraft carrying 173 people overran Cebu International Airport in Manila late Sunday. The airline claimed that no injuries occurred and that all passengers were evacuated safely.

Korean Air released a statement Monday stating that the Airbus SE (OTC-:) A330 widebody flying from Seoul, Cebu, had tried to land twice in bad weather but then overran the runway the third time.

“Passengers were taken to three local hotels, and an alternate flight was arranged,” the airline stated. “We are currently trying to identify the cause of this incident.”

According to FlightRadar24 flight tracking website FlightRadar24 the A330-300 jet involved was delivered new to Korean Air in 1998. It said that other flights to Cebu had either diverted to other airports, or returned to their origin.
