Air India Express has set up an internal enquiry to find out whether its Dubai-Mangaluru flight operated on Sunday early morning had hit runway guiding lights on landing at Mangaluru airport.

"The initial enquiry report has not confirmed that the guiding lights were damaged by IX 814 (Dubai-Mangaluru flight)", said an AI spokesperson. "Post arrival inspection of the aircraft revealed no damages".

The flight was reportedly carrying 185 people - including two infants - when the incident took place. As per the report by Times of India, the pilots of Boeing 737 immediately brought the plane back to the tabletop runway's centre line after the momentary skidding. No damage to the plane was reported, and none of the passengers were injured. "The aircraft skidded to the right momentarily after touch down but got back to the center line thereafter", Air India Express CEO Shyam Sundar was quoted as saying by TOI.

At the same airport, half a decade ago, another Air India Express Flight 812 overshot the runway and fell off a cliff before bursting into flames.
