Speaking to ANGOP on Boeing 777 - 300 ER and its operation, the company's deputy commercial director, Alipio de Azevedo, explained that it will be subjected to a more thorough review.

Alipio de Azevedo admitted, however, the possibility of the plane to get some of its parts replaced, and then, inspected by the national aviation authority.

The Boeing 777-300ER, registered D2-TEH, was reported to have veered off the runway earlier Saturday.

The aircraft collided at 9 am local time with a pole which stopped it moving further whose damage to the aircraft was still being evaluated at the site the incident occurred.

The accident was attributed to uncoordinated actions between the pilot and airport staff.
