An Iranian jetliner skidded off a snowy runaway in the western city of Kermanshah due to low visibility on Saturday, Iran’s state TV said.

The report said that there were no injuries and that the plane overshot the landing strip by only a few meters. The Iran Air flight coming from the capital, Tehran, had not experienced any technical problems, it added.

The state-run IRNA said one of the plane’s wheels slipped six meters due to heavy snowfall when it was in taxiway after landing.

This is the second time in a week that a plane skidded off the runaway in Iran.
