A Peruvian Airlines Boeing 737-300 has been destroyed by fire after veering off the runway while landing at Francisco Carle airport in Jauja, Peru.
The airline has confirmed that the aircraft, registration OB-2036-P, veered to the right of the runway after landing around 16:30 local time on 28 March.
Television footage shows that shortly after the incident, the aircraft became engulfed in flames. Peru’s interior minister Carlos Basombrio has told reporters that the fire likely started when the wing scraped the runway.
All 141 passengers on-board were evacuated with no injuries reported, Peruvian Airlines adds, and the authorities have commenced an investigation into the accident.
Flight Fleets Analyzer shows that the 737 was built in 1991, and is owned by an ABS vehicle linked to Aviation Capital Group. ACG is listed as the manager.
