BANGKOK – A Thai Airways Airbus A330-300 plane has skidded off the runway while landing at Bangkok’s main airport, injuring 14 passengers, the airline said Monday.

Thai Airways said that flight TG679 from Guangzhou, China, had a “glitch” in its wheel base while landing at Suvarnabhumi Airport late Sunday. Photos of the incident showed the plane resting in grass beside the runway with its nose down and emergency slides inflated.

“After touchdown at Suvarnabhumi Airport, the landing gear malfunctioned and caused the aircraft to skid off the runway.”
