An Air India Express flight from Dubai skidded off the runway while landing at Kozhikode in the south Indian state of Kerala on Friday evening, local media reported.

"The Air India flight (IX-1344) from Dubai carrying 174 passengers skidded during landing at Karipur Airport in Kozhikode today. There were six crew members onboard, including two pilots," Air India Express said in a statement.

There was no immediate official information on casualties. A police official told Reuters that a pilot had died in the crash, while reports spoke of dozens of passengers taken to hospital.

The ANI news agency posted footage from the crash scene on Twitter that showed the aircraft's fuselage spit in two.
