It also had fuel to attempt a diversionary landing elsewhere, Civil Aviation Minister Hardeep Singh Puri said Saturday. Flight IX-1344, carrying 184 people including passengers and crew from Dubai, broke up into pieces after skidding off the runway amid heavy rain and hurtling down a valley at 7.41 PM. This morning the flight data recorders were found. At least 18 people, including both pilots, were killed and 127 others were injured in the accident.

The airport, built on top of a hill with limited space at the end of the runway, is one of Kerala's more prominent international terminals.
