 Indian airliner accident: risk of landing at high altitude Airport

According to the Hindustan Times, a total of 190 passengers were on board, killing at least 20 people and injuring 123. Rescue work has been completed and survivors have been sent to hospitals for treatment.

The aircraft involved in this incident is Boeing 737-800, which belongs to one of the new generation of Boeing 737NG series aircraft. This series of aircraft first flew in 1997, nearly 20 years earlier than Boeing 737max.

On June 27 last year, Boeing 737NG series commercial aircraft officially stopped production, and delivered the last 737NG aircraft to Japans Tianma airlines, and 737NG has become one of the longest continuous production aircraft in Boeing history.

According to the data compiled by Boeing, the 737NG series aircraft have set one of the safest jet aircraft records. As of 2018, only eight fatal accidents have occurred out of more than 7000 737NG sold by Boeing.

Air Express Indias accident was an accident in the process of landing, the Civil Aviation Administration of India (DGCA) said the plane landed on runway 10 of kosekod airport, skidded to the end of the runway, then fell to a 30 foot Valley and burst.

According to Boeing statistics, aircraft take-off and landing are prone to accidents. From 2009 to 2018, nearly half of all fatal crashes occurred during the final landing and landing.

It is worth noting that the crash of air express has something to do with the airport where it landed. Kozerkod International Airport in Kerala State is a high platform airport with a runway on the top of the mountain. When the pilot enters the station and lands, his visual illusion is at the same level as the plain below. Coupled with the monsoon climate, Kerala has been hit by heavy rain and thunderstorms in recent days. Local officials believe that low visibility in rainy days may directly lead to the crash.

As a high desktop airport, its space is limited and it has great security risks. Therefore, several international airlines have stopped flying large airliners (including Boeing 777 and Airbus A330, etc.) to kozekod airport in Kerala.

In response to the Indian plane crash, Boeing said it had contacted Air India Express to provide the necessary assistance and said in a statement: we are collecting more information while closely following the relevant developments.

In order to curb novel coronavirus spread, India suspended all passenger flights in late March. Recently, India has resumed some international air transport business. The axb1344 flight operated by Air India Express is a return flight operated by the government to carry out the national evacuation task. The passengers are Indian citizens who have worked or lived in the Middle East before.
