Indonesia’s Lion Air has confirmed that one of its Boeing 737-900ERs was involved in a hard landing incident at Surabaya’s Juanda International airport on the morning of 1 February.

The aircraft, registered as PK-LFH, was operating a flight from Balikpapan to Surabaya, and experienced a hard landing at around 10:20 local time, a Lion Air tells Flightglobal.

The hard landing caused some of the aircraft’s tyres to burst, but there was no damage to the landing gear. Inspections of the airframe are continuing, and the aircraft reamins on the ground in Surabaya.

Three passengers received minor injuries during the incident and were treated by a doctor, the spokesman adds.

Flightglobal’s Ascend Online Fleets database shows that the 737 was delivered in December 2007, and is owned by HSH Global Aircraft Fund 1, and is managed by Amentum Capital.

Ascend also shows that Lion Air’s last major aircraft loss occurred on 13 April 2013 when one of its 737-800s undershot the runway at Denpasar’s Ngurah Rai International airport.
