A turboprop Cebu Pacific plane bound for Manila had a "slight runway excursion" upon arrival, the airline said Tuesday, as it assured the public that all on board were safe.

All 42 passengers and four crew members of Flight DG6112 from Naga City deplaned normally with no reported injuries at the Ninoy Aquino International Airport Terminal 3, Cebu Pacific said.

The plane landed in Manila at 11:45 a.m. according to Cebu Pacific. The aircraft was towed from the runway shortly after 1 p.m.

As of 2 p.m., all passengers have left the airport, Cebu Pacific said.

"We are working on normalizing our operations as soon as possible. We sincerely apologize for the inconvenience this has caused and we thank you for your kind understanding," Cebu Pacific said.
