The Transportation Safety Board (TSB) of Canada is investigating after a airplane overran the runway at the Waterloo Region International Airport on Friday.

The airplane was a Boeing 737, owned and operated by Flair Airlines. 

It was coming from Vancouver to Kitchener-Waterloo when, at roughly 6:25 a.m., it overran runway 26, mentioned the TSB.

There have been 134 passengers and 6 crew on board. No one was injured, says the TSB. 

The runway has been closed, affecting some flights later within the day.

“Passengers deplaned the plane and have been taken to the terminal by bus. The security and well-being of our passengers and crew is our high precedence,” a Flair Airlines spokesperson mentioned in an e-mail to CBC News.
