The Citilink Airbus A320 plane was carrying 174 passengers en route from Jakarta to Padang when it skidded off the runway upon landing on Sunday August 2, injuring three people and forcing the airport to shut down, transportation ministry spokesman Julius Barata told Reuters.

“The plane is blocking the runway, so the airport is still closed,” Barata added.

Citilink is the budget arm of flag carrier PT Garuda Indonesia Tbk.
