A Jeju Air Boeing 737-800, registration HL7779 performing flight 7C-510 from Jeju to Busan (South Korea) with 150 people on board, was cleared for takeoff and was accelerating for takeoff from Jeju's runway 07 when tower instructed the aircraft to stop. The crew rejected takeoff at high speed (above 95 knots over ground) and brought the aircraft to a stop about 2500 meters/8200 feet down the runway just short of the intersection with crossing runway 13/31. A number of tyres deflated disabling the aircraft on the runway.

Runway 07/25 needed to be closed for about one hour until the aircraft could be towed off the runway.

The airline reported the crew were instructed to reject takeoff and complied with the instruction. Some aircraft equipment was damaged, the brakes overheated causing a number of tyres to deflate. Apparently tower made a mistake, a Navy aircraft was departing crossing runway 13.

A ground observer reported a Navy aircraft was landing on runway 13 at the time.

A replacement Boeing 737-800 registration HL8261 reached Busan with a delay of 3 hours.
