Kampala, Entebbe: A passenger airplane skid off the runway during landing at Uganda’s Entebbe airport on Wednesday morning.

In a statement, RwandAir said the incident was “as a result of bad weather”.

All passengers and flight crew disembarked safely with no reported injuries, it added.

The aviation regulator said an alternate runway is operational for small and light aircraft.

“All efforts are underway to remove the aircraft from the runway strip so that the main runway can return to full use,” it said.

Reports have it that 20 of the 60 passengers on board are scheduled to attend the birthday party of President Yoweri Museveni’s son Muhoozi Kainerugaba scheduled for this week.

Gen Kainerugaba, who is also the commander of land forces, tweeted on Monday that former Miss Rwanda will be among the guests at the event.
