A Korean Airlines Airbus A330-300, registration HL7525 performing flight KE-631 from Seoul (South Korea) to Cebu City (Philippines) with 162 passengers and 11 crew, had gone around at low height twice following approaches to Cebu's runway 22, climbed back to 5000 feet, entered a hold and landed on Cebu's runway 22 at 23:07L (15:07Z) about 55 minutes after the first and about 42 minutes after the second go around. The aircraft crossed the runway end at about 80 knots over ground and came to a stop about 360 meters/1200 feet past the runway end close to the airport perimeter fence. No injuries are being reported, the aircraft - having broken through the localizer antenna - received substantial damage including collapse of the nose gear, damage to the nose underbelly and penetrations to the cockpit.

Philippines Civil Aviation Authority have opened an investigation into the accident.

On Oct 24th 2022 Philippines Authorities as well as Korean Ministry of Land, Infrastructure and Transport report, according to first preliminary investigation results a hydraulic failure had caused a brakes failure.

On Oct 25th 2022 it became known that the captain of the flight provided testimony that they suffered a hard touchdown on their second approach due to wind shear forcing them down, during the following go around a warning light regarding brakes came on. The crew therefore declared emergency, prepared for the emergency landing and performed a third approach in gusting winds and turbulence, a warning light regarding brakes pressure came on at the time of touch down and they could not slow down the aircraft.

Passengers reported they were approaching the airport with visible lightning around the aerodrome, the approach was turbulent, after breaking through the clouds the city lights became visible when the crew initiated the first go around. The second approach was turbulent, the approach was continued and the aircraft's nose began to rise when the aircraft heavily contacted the runway with a loud bang, the crew initiated another go around. The crew provided instructions for an emergency landing including the brace position. On the third approach as soon as the aircraft broke through the clouds the flight attendants began shouting to assume the brace position, touch down was smooth but the aircraft overran the end of the runway. After coming to a stop the aircraft was evacuated via slides.

Also on Oct 25th 2022 Philippines' ATC services confirmed a distress call was made by the aircraft prior to landing.
