An Air Canada plane had an accident early Sunday as it landed at Halifax International Airport in the eastern Canadian province of Nova Scotia, injuring 23 people.
The Montreal-based airline said flight AC624 was carrying 133 passengers and five crew members when it was “involved in an incident upon landing” in Halifax at 12:43 a.m. local time on Sunday.
Twenty-three passengers and crew members sustained “non-life-threatening injuries” and were taken to area hospitals, Air Canada said. By midafternoon, all but one of those injured people had been released from hospital, the airline said.
“We at Air Canada are greatly relieved that no one was critically injured. Yet we fully appreciate this has been a very unsettling experience for our customers and their families, as well as our employees, and we are focused on caring for all those affected,” said Klaus Goersch, Executive Vice-President and Chief Operating Officer of Air Canada, in a release.
The Transportation Safety Board of Canada said it was investigating the incident, which involved an Airbus A320.
