A Kuwait Airways flight was damaged after crashing into a pile of snow while landing at the Beirut-Rafic Hariri International Airport on Sunday, April 21, 2019.

Upon the accident, Kuwait Airways tweeted on its official Twitter account:

However, the flight was able to safely land in Beirut, as a technical services team from Kuwait Airways was able to repair the damage.

No injuries were reported among the passengers, yet passengers were only affected by delays due to the incident.

A cyclone hit Lebanon and the surrounding countries last week, bringing with it cold temperatures, gusts of snow, hail and strong wind.
