Primera Air Nordic Boeing 737-800 overran runway 19 at Keflavík airport, Wizz Air diverts


Shortly before 17:45 a Primera Air Nordic Boeing 737-800 from Alicante to Keflavík (Reykjavik) overran runway 19. The cause of the accident is likely ice on the runway and heavy snowfall. Nobody was injured in the accident on board the Icelandic airline.

As a result a Wizz Air Airbus from Budapest was required to turn back and divert to another airport (see Flightradar24 image)

The airport is working hard to re-open the runway.
