An Air Europa jet inbound from Glasgow skided off the runway and ended up at the airport's "beach area" (according to press release) after landing in Lanzarote earlier this morning.

According to the first reports, there were 74 pax onboard flight UX196 and everyone is ok.

Airport is closed until further notice.

here's the link (in Spanish)

I would have thought coming from GLA the aircraft would have been an B738...

All UX 737s are -800s.

This was an empty flight. Hardly 40% Loadfactor. But good to hear that everyone is ok.

True.

My translation

MADRID | LAS PALMAS DE GRAN CANARIA.- An Air Europe en route from Glasgow slid off the runway this morning at Lanzarote airport, although none were injured, reported a source from the Delegation of the Government of the Canary Islands.

Flight UX-196 had problems on landing, according to company sources. This was a charter flight, according to the same sources, with 72-74 aboard, including crew and passengers, who are all safe.

The airplane, a Boeing 737, is currently in the beach area of the airport where emergency services are assisting passengers.* All the passengers have been transferred to the airport terminal.

Lanzarote Airport has remained close until emergency services can remove the involved aircraft, and currently no aircraft can take off or land. Sources from the Delagation of the Government of the Canary Islands have stated that at this point there appear to be none wounded in the accident.

*The article used the present tense in this sentence, but the past tense would make more sense, I think.

from my perspective it looks like the aircraft is still on the tarmac which means no wheels in the grass (if there is any in between the runwayend and the fence )

That was VERY close.

It seems that the aircraft never left the asphalt even though it went beyond the piano keys.

According to the press (you never know with them), Air Europa has said that the aircraft experienced an "unstabilized approach". Again, this is what the press said so I guess we better not jump into conclussions.

as of 1030 the 737 has been moved to a taxiway, at 1045 two Beech 1900
cargo flights departed so there is now some movement.

I would be surprised if Air Europa really said that just a few hours after the incident.
ACE reports southwesterly winds today, so they must have executed a VOR app for rwy21.
Steeper slope than normal, 3.3* i think. Rwy not to long but no problem for a light B738 even under wet conditions.
I would also bet for a long landing as a result of an unstable approach but mainly because of 99% of all overruns have this cause. We will see but as nothing seriously happened there will be no big deal about it.

It was an end of summer season charter flight operating on behalf of Thomas Cook Holidays. Flight number AEA196, left GLA at around 3am. But yes, quite a poor load. Good to see everyone is ok however

Most flights in the last week of the summer season dont carry fully load and this was no exception. It perhaps averted disaster that it wasnt full- perhaps thats what we shoud be concentrating on.....?

Quoting BY738 (Reply 20):

I would have thought so… If the aircraft had been full it would have more weight and would have taken a little longer to stop, by looking at it, if it had been only 15 feet it would have left the airport boundary maybe another 100 feet and people would have got a little wet.

To be it still does not make sense… The Air Europa pilots must have known they had touched down too far down the runway (or going to) – so why not going around?

Even if the runway is wet that should be accounted for.

Interestingly when I worked for Caledonian Airways years back we landed at Fuerteventura (another Canary island) on a Boeing 757. A few moments after touch down the Captain instructed the crew to brace. We came to a full stop on the runway and were met by the fire/emergency services.

I later found out from the Captain that just after touch down there was a sudden reduction in breaking and they were not going to take the chance. As quickly as the grip disappeared it came back and the aircraft stopped with just over 100 feet of runway left.

Out return flight was delayed for six hours as the runway was closed and ‘hosed down’. A report was later given to Caledonian saying that ‘fluid’ was found on the runway (course unknown) that greatly reduced the friction (and grip).

Any idea’s what fluid could have done that?

I would guess something like oil or fuel, both of which have lubricating effects.

Glad that everyone was OK. The pictures I saw last nigth on BBC news looked much more dramatic that these, they were taken from behind the aircraft and from quite a distance. The steep slope the a/c came to rest on gave the appearance of a nose-wheel/R main LG collapse. Glad to see that this was not, in fact, the case.

Brian.
