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.”
