On 30 June, an Air India Express Boeing 737-800 (VT-AYA) operated flight IX384 between Dubai, U.A.E. and Mangalore, India. During landing, however, the aircraft overshot the runway. There were no injuries among the 183 passengers and crew members.

One day later, on 1 July, the airline suffered another mishap: a Boeing 737-800 (VT-AXM) was operating flight IX382 between Dammam King Fahd Airport, Saudi Arabia and Kozhikode Calicut Airport, India with 180 passengers on board when – during landing – the tail of the aircraft struck the runway.

There was a tail strike on landing,” an Air India Express spokesman said, “the aircraft has been checked thoroughly and there was no damage. The plane is now being released to operate a flight to Sharjah.”
