The Boeing from Abu Dhabi landed in heavy rain.
102 passengers and six crew members were evacuated using ladders and there were no injuries, said an Air India spokesperson.
"During heavy rains last night at about 2:40 am, while entering the bay from the taxiway at Kochi, our aircraft, a Boeing 737-800 skidded off the taxiway," the spokesperson said in a statement.
The flight was operated by Air India Express, the international budget arm of the government-owned Air India.
In July, an Air India Express passenger plane from Dubai moved off the runway after landing in Mangalore; nobody was injured in that accident.
