A preliminary report has been published into the incident on February 22, 2024, involving a Marathon Airlines Embraer ERJ-195 operating on behalf of Air Serbia.  The aircraft (registered OY-GDC) was operating a scheduled passenger service (flight number JU324) from Belgrade (BEG) to Dusseldorf (DUS) with 106 passengers and crew onboard.

The aircraft had lined up runway 30L at taxiway D5, which has a takeoff run available (TORA) of 4,135 ft (1,273m). The flight began its takeoff roll at 17:38 and subsequently overran the end of the runway before becoming airborne.

The plane climbed through a height of 50 feet (15m) about 6,700 feet (2,050m) past the runway end and stopped its climb at 4,000 feet (1,219m).

The crew then elected to burn off fuel and return to Belgrade for a landing on runway 30L where the aircraft landed without further incident about 55 minutes after departure. While there were no injuries, the aircraft sustained substantial damage. Additionally, following the incident, the Instrument Landing System of runway 12R was downgraded from CATIII to CATI.
