The Embraer 145 operated by MEX-Mozambique Expresso, a subsidiary of national flag carrier LAM, had landed after completing a domestic flight from Nacala, in the north of the country, that included a stop in the city of Beira.

According to Jorge, indications that it came off the runway because of the strong crosswinds at the time of landing, at 4.50 p.m. (3.50 p.m. Lisbon time).

The aircraft ended up on the terrain alongside the runway, eventually coming to a halt in an area of bushes, where airport emergency vehicles rushed to its aid.

Preliminary data point to slight damage to the aircraft, Jorge said.

“There are no wounded,” he stressed, adding that “passengers and crew disembarked safely and were transported by bus” to the terminal building.
