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

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

It came from Vancouver to Kitchener-Waterloo, when at approximately 6:25 ran over runway 26, the TSB said.

There were 134 passengers and six crew members on board. No one was injured, says TSB.

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

“Passengers departed the flight and were taken to the terminal by bus. The safety and well-being of our passengers and crew is our top priority,” a Flair Airlines spokesperson said in an email to CBC News.
