Tiruapti: A SpiceJet plane with 60 passengers last night skid off the runway at Renigunta airport, about 20 km from Tiruapti, but no one was hurt, airport sources said.

The flight, coming from Hyderabad, skid off the runway due to technical snag about half-a-kilometre before coming to a halt after ploughing into the sandy soil, the sources said.

The passengers, including former Andhra Pradesh Minister Ramnarayan Reddy, were disembarked from the flight and taken to the airport waiting hall, they added.
