The last major aviation accident was reported on May 18, when a Boeing 737 flight, crashed in Havana killing 112 passengers on-board.
The plane was at the end of a two-and-a-half-hour flight from Xiamen, southern China, when the incident occurred.
In a joint statement, the Manila International Airport Authority (MIAA) and the Civil Aviation Authority of the Philippines (CAAP) said that more than 100 passengers of Xiamen Air flight MF8667 were forced to get off the plane after it went off the runway.
Tracking data provided by FlightAware.com indicated the crew attempted to land 15 minutes before the incident but made a decision to abort and try again.
The aircraft suffered visible damage to its landing gear and one of its engines was detached from the wing.
The flight path of the plane suggests it had aborted an earlier attempt to land before the incident.
The Boeing 737-800, carrying 157 passengers and eight crew from China's coastal city of Xiamen, managed to touch down close to midnight amid a downpour after aborting an initial attempt to land due to poor visibility, according to Philippine officials, who expressed relief that a disaster was avoided.
One engine of the plane was missing.
Meanwhile, thousands of affected passengers remain stranded at the Naia waiting for flight operation to resume. Chinese and Filipino tourists have used the carrier's route between Xiamen and Manila since its launch several years ago.
NAIA also said that because of the incident, they are extending the runway closure by four more hours until 4 p.m.
As a result of the suspension of operations at the NAIA worldwide runaway, which will remain in effect until 4 pm, several flights were diverted to the Clark global Airport in Pampanga. Cebu Pacific told GMA News that its passengers on the diverted flights will be shuffled by bus to downtown Manila. "Our priority is to ensure the safety of our passengers and to manage the flight disruptions".
