Flight MU765 from Nanjing landed at 10:51, but the Airbus 321 slid off the runway as it was heading to the gate, airport officials said.

Firefighters and ambulances were deployed, but no injuries have been reported. Airport authorities have closed the north runway.

As only the South Runway is currently operating, flights are expected to be disrupted, the airport announced.

It advised passengers to contact their airlines, check the HKIA website or screens at the airport for information.
