Kuching airport temporarily closed

According to The Star today, the Kuching International Airport has been closed temporarily Tuesday until further notice.

The temporary closure is due to an incident Monday night, when an AirAsia aircraft (flight AK5218 from Kuala Lumpur), skidded and veered off the airport's runway 25, when landing at 10.02 during heavy rain.

All passengers were evacuated safely from the aircraft. Only one flight was released for departure from the airport, flight MH2505 to Kuala Lumpur.
