There was palpable tension in Rivers State on Tuesday when a ValueJet CRJ 900 Bombardier aircraft overshot the runway at the Port-Harcourt International Airport.

The incident caused momentary panic and chaos among passengers of the aircraft, which landed at 15.32 hours with 62 passengers and five flight crew members.

However, despite the alarming situation, the aircraft with registration 5N-BXR landed safely, leaving passengers perplexed about the unusual occurrence.

It was learned that the incident did not result in any damage to the aircraft or the death of any of the passengers and crew members.

Reacting to the development in a chat with Vanguard, the Managing Director of ValueJet, Capt. Dapo Majekodunmi explained that the slip resulted from algae on the taxiway, preventing the aircraft from maintaining the centerline.

Assuring the public of ValueJet’s commitment to safety, Majekodunmi stated that the airline’s operations remain normal without disruptions.
