A Boeing 737 of the Malaysian company Malindo Airlines skidded off the runway with 139 passengers onboard on the evening on April 19, 2018. The aircraft finished its course in amud after pilots decided to interrupt a takeoff. No injuries were reported.

The plane was heading to Kuala Lumpur. It was accelerating on the runway of Tribhuvan International Airport (KTM) and was about to takeoff. But the pilots detected a problem, which is currently not  revealed yet, and decided to abort the procedure.

Flights towards Kathmandu were canceled for about twelve hours as emergency services tried to free the plane from the mud, about 30 meters off of the runway.

This incident comes  one month after the crash of US-Bangla Bombardier Dash 8 Q400 on March 12, 2018, at Kathmandu airport. At the time, the plane approached the runway from the wrong side and touched the ground before crashing, killing 52 people
