About 60 passengers and the crew of an Air Sahara Delhi-Bangalore-Kochi flight had a miraculous escape after it skidded off the runway, airport sources said on Wednesday.
The flight landed late on Tuesday night with its right wheel on the edge of the runway but the pilot managed to bring back the aircraft to the runway, sources at the international airport at nearby Nedumbassery said.
The air traffic was stopped for a few hours as some slush had accumulated on the runway, they said.
The flight operations resumed at 4.30 am on Wednesday morning.
