Airport officials said the plane with 238 people on board was coming from Istanbul on Wednesday when the accident happened.Images of the aircraft circulating on social networking site Twitter showed the plane lying on a grassy ground near the fire station with its nose on the ground.The aircraft was put on a long hold and had also aborted earlier approach for landing for a go-around.
The runway at TIA has been closed after the incident.
