- Jet Airways plane skids off runway at Goa airport; some injured
- Emergency slides used to move passengers out of the plane
- Jet Airways flight 9W 2374 was heading for Mumbai
Emergency slides were used to move passengers out of the plane. 15 passengers suffered minor injuries while being evacuated, said officials.
The Navy said its prompt response in rescuing passengers prevented a "catastrophe"; the plane was fully loaded with fuel and an explosion was also possible.
Images showed medical staff treating injured passengers lying on stretchers. Some passengers were taken to a local hospital.
The airport, which is located in the Navy facility INS Hansa in Vasco town, was closed down for a while and some flights were diverted.
The Directorate General of Civil Aviation and the Aircraft Accident Investigation Bureau are inquiring into the incident.
The Jet Airways flight had arrived from Dubai and was heading to Mumbai.
Jet Airways later flew the stranded passengers to Mumbai in a wide-body B777 with a capacity to seat 346 guests.
The incident took place at the height of the tourist season in Goa, where thousands arrive at this time for Christmas and New Year celebrations.
