BRADES, Montserrat - Fly Montserrat Airways has been grounded after one of its planes rolled off the runway at the Caribbean island's international airport.

The Eastern Caribbean Civil Aviation Authority said Wednesday that the airline has been barred from flying in the region until it meets several requirements.

Fly Montserrat director Nigel Harris said the decision was made after a pilot rolled a plane gently onto the grass on Tuesday as a precaution after feeling a minor vibration on the runway. None of the seven passengers aboard were injured.

Fly Montserrat served nearby Antigua and Nevis daily.
