The airport has been closed until further notice and investigators have launched an investigation into the incident, authorities confirmed.

All EasyJet flights between London Gatwick and the south of France have been canceled due to the humiliating botch.

Montpellier Airport – one of the 10 busiest in France – today told passengers it had closed its doors due to a “technical incident” and told them not to go to the airport.

West Atlantic’s Boeing 737 departed Paris Charles de Gaulle Airport and arrived in Montpellier in the early hours of Saturday morning.

As the massive plane landed, it veered off the runway and crashed into a lake.

Rescuers evacuated three people from the plane.

Four members of the French air investigative team are on site conducting an investigation.

Crime scene photos show the West Atlantic plane stranded in a lake at the airport.

Two fire engines and a van believed to belong to investigators can be seen ashore nearby.

A front door is open and a back door can be seen with a ladder on it.

The Bureau d’enquêtes et d’analyses (BEA), France’s plane crash investigators, tweeted: “Accident of @BoeingFrance #737, registered EC-NLS, operated by #WestAtlantic / Runway Excursion while landing on 09/24/22 at the airport of @ mplaeroport/ 4 investigators @BEA_Aero on site / opening a security investigation.”

According to data from Flightradar24, the plane was traveling at a very fast 160 knots upon landing and did not stop in time to avoid the end of the runway.

EasyJet confirmed the flight cancellations, saying: “This is due to an incident involving a non-easyJet aircraft at Montpellier airport.”

Flights are operating as usual tonight, according to The Independent.

Domestic flights to and from Paris are also affected by delays.
