On August 29, a China Express Airlines Bombardier Canadair CRJ-900 landed at Aksu Airport (ZWAK), Xinjiang Uyghur Autonomous Region, China, and overran the runway.

According to AvHerald, the four-and-a-half-year-old aircraft, registered B-3250 and flying G54394 from Korla to Aksu (China) with 64 passengers and nine staff onboard, had been holding about 6,000 meters (19,700 ft) for around 10 minutes before beginning its approach to runway 27.

The plane landed safely but overran the runway, coming to a halt on soft terrain about 76 meters past the runway’s end (and about 16 meters past the paved surface of the runway end safety area).

The video below shows passengers being evacuated by the overwing exits and having to jump or slide down the flaps; four passengers were injured.

The Civil Aviation Administration of China has launched an inquiry into the reason of the event, but no other details have been published at this time. This post will be updated as more information becomes available.

Aksu Airport has a runway configuration of 09/27 with a length of 2400 meters and an elevation of 3800 feet/1160 meters.

China Express Airlines is based in Guiyang Longdongbao (KWE / ZUGY) and now serves 148 regional flights with 56 aircraft, mostly CRJ900s.
