The incident happened on early Monday evening when Flight 1019, which is a Boeing 737-800, attempted to land at Pristina International Airport. The aircraft went off the runway and came to a stop on grass field.

Flight 1019 had just completed a 1-hour flight from Istanbul’s Atatürk Airport with 143 passengers and 8 crew members on board. Video from the scene showed passengers being evacuated by emergency personnel, but there were no immediate reports of injuries.

The incident occurred during bad weather, though it is unclear whether that caused the plane to leave the runway.

Other details were not immediately available.
