Pegasus issued the next assertion:
We’re sorry to report that the Boeing 737-800 sort TC-CPF registered plane of Pegasus Airlines Flight Number PC 8622 Ankara-Trabzon flight scheduled at 18:25 UTC tonight, had a Runway Excursion Incident throughout touchdown at Trabzon Airport ( January 13, 2018). All 162 passengers, 2 pilots and four cabin crew have been disembarked safely from the plane. There has been no loss of life or damage to anybody on-board.
They say any touchdown you stroll away from is an efficient touchdown, and gratefully everybody made it off. We’ll have to attend for the investigation to find out whether or not it was runway situations, pilot error in merely turning the incorrect route at midnight, failing to correctly deploy touchdown procedures, or an tools error — or as so usually the case, some mixture of elements.
