Lion Air 737 in runway overrun at Pontianak

A Lion Air Boeing 737-800 overran the runway as it was landing at Pontianak's Supadio International airport on 16 February.

The low-cost carrier states that the aircraft, registered PK-LPS, was operating flight JT714 from Jakarta when the incident occurred in poor weather conditions.

It stressed that visibility at the time was safe for aircraft to land. There were seven crew and 182 passengers on the flight, and two passengers were taken to hospital for observation.

Flight tracking websites indicate that the aircraft departed Jakarta at 13:58 local time, and touched down at 15:10 local time on runway 15/33.

Images on social media indicate that the aircraft overran the runway and came to rest on its nose.

The aircraft was removed from the runway on 17 February. Investigations by the National Transportation Safety Committee, as well as the directorate for airworthiness and aircraft operations are now taking place, adds Lion.

Flight Fleets Analyzer shows that PK-LPS was delivered new to the carrier in June 2018, and the jet is owned by Lion Air.
