The Department of Transportation (DOTr) and the Manila International Airport Authority (MIAA) assure that flights to and from the Ninoy Aquino International Airport (NAIA) remain normal and unhampered despite Monday afternoon's incident involving a Saudi Airlines plane that veered off the NAIA runway.
 
The flight carried a total 420 passengers and crew who were all safe and unhurt. The said airline also offered hotel accommodation to a total of 356 passengers. As of midnight today, 21 June 2022, the aircraft has been removed from the remote parking area.
 
Yesterday, the Manila International Airport Authority Fire and Rescue Division immediately responded to an emergency call of a Saudia Airlines flight after landing. 
 
SV862 landed at Runway 06-24 at 1:47PM when its six (6) right landing gears veered off the pavement at the end portion of Taxiway Charlie onto the grassy portion while enroute to its parking bay in NAIA Terminal 1 causing the wheels to get stuck in the process.
 
MIAA General Manager Eddie Monreal, CAAP Director General Capt. Jim Sydiongco, and CAAP Chief-of-Staff Atty. Danjun Lucas were on site supervising the recovery operations. Other MIAA units likewise rendered assistance, including the operations, security and medical teams.
