Preliminary fact-finding revealed that the incident occurred at 1:00 pm on Saturday, May 11, 2024, at the domestic wing of the Murtala Muhammed Airport, Lagos. The aircraft with registration number 5N BZZ, operated by XeJet Airline on behalf of NG Eagle Airlines, was completing a scheduled flight from Abuja to Lagos with 49 passengers and 3 crew members onboard. The flight departed Abuja at 11:10 a.m., maintaining a cruising altitude of Flight Level 280.

It was cleared for landing after being held for 50 minutes in Lagos, waiting for the weather to clear. The aircraft then landed on Runway 18 Left (18L) and went off the end of the runway to the left (?) of the centreline. It stopped on the grass verge approximately 326 meters from the threshold of Runway 36R.

The captain subsequently shut down the engines and commanded an evacuation through a controlled disembarkation. Three exit doors were used for the evacuation process, including two over-wing windows and one forward exit door. There were no reported injuries or fatalities as a result of the incident.

However, damage was sustained to the aircraft’s nose landing gear and both main landing gear tyres.
