A medium-sized business jet skidded off the runway on landing at Istanbul's Ataturk Airport, airport officials said on Tuesday.

A Bombardier Challenger-60 with the Turkish VIP charter carrier Arkasair enroute from Izmir to Istanbul earlier this morning ran off the runway some 50 meters and lost its nose gear, officials said.

No casualties reported. A three-member crew was on board the jet.

Efforts were underway to tow the plane.

The accident made no effect on the airport traffic, officials said.
