Airline spokesman Carl Bowen said the Boeing 757-200 aircraft returned to the airport less than 20 minutes after taking off around 2:10 a.m. local time, but overshot the runway upon landing. The crew comprised of six Guyanese and two Jamaicans.

The aircraft only came to halt after crashing into a fence and when its front wheel became wedged in a pile of sand being used for the ongoing airport expansion project, at the end of the runway. However, the extended runway has not been open yet and was not available for the emergency landing.

The Minister confirmed the Fly Jamaica flight crashed at the same spot Caribbean Airlines flight crashed in 2011.

Guyana's Chief Medical Officer, Shamdeo Persaud, said five people had been referred to another hospital for "further investigation" for spinal injuries. The airport has also set up a hotline for family members looking for assistance and information.
