A Qeshm Air Airbus A320-200, registration EP-FQP performing flight QB-2216 from Najaf (Iraq) to Tehran Imam Khomeini (Iran) with 131 passengers and 10 crew, was about to depart from runway 10 at 13:50L (10:50Z) when the aircraft did not line up correctly (taking the turn too narrow) and came to a stop with the left hand main gear sunk into soft ground, nose and right main gear on the paved surface of the runway next to the taxiway. There were no injuries.

Iran's Civil Aviation Authority reported the aircraft was lining up for departure when a wheel sunk into the earthy shoulder of the runway. All passengers got safely off the aircraft. A replacement aircraft is being dispatched to Najaf.

No NOTAMs are available.
