The crew performed the approach in good weather conditions (wind from southeast at 4 knots and 8 km visibility). After touchdown on runway 28 at Gautam Buddha Airport, the aircraft did not stop within the remaining distance, overran, lost its left main gear (right main gear state to be confirmed) and came to rest in the bush, about 110 meters past the runway end. All 32 occupants were able to evacuate the cabin safely. The aircraft seems to be damaged beyond repair.
