The aircraft, carrying 164 passengers, had arrived from Sharjah International Airport in the UAE as it skidded off the runway reportedly due to bad weather.   It was met with emergency vehicles, and passengers and crew were evacuated using emergency slides.

Pegasus said in a statement: “There are no casualties or injuries, and the necessary investigations have been initiated.”
