Kuching Airport Closed Temporarily

KUCHING: The Kuching International Airport has been closed Tuesday until further notice, a Malaysia Airports Bhd statement said.

This is becaused of an incident Monday night, when an AirAsia aircraft (flight AK5218 from Kuala Lumpur), skidded and veered off the airport's runway 25, when landing at 10.02 during heavy rain.

All passengers were evacuated safely from the aircraft. Efforts to remove the aircraft Tuesday were hampered by continuous heavy rains. Only one flight was released for departure from the airport, flight MH2505 to Kuala Lumpur. All AirAsia and Malaysia Airlines flights from the airport have been effected.

Passengers are advised to contact their airline's offices to enquire about their flight status.

Stella says:
Been there few weeks ago. Fortunately nothing bad happened. Thank GOD.
Luckily all passengers evacuated safely. Stay alert for the bad weather in the future before making decision to fly.

p/s: I wanted to blogout about our trip in Kuching, but forgot to bring pictures.. sigh!
