Mangalore deputy police commissioner R. Ramesh said the plane, a Boeing 737 believed to be carrying 160 passengers and six crew, crashed at around 6:30am local time after overshooting the runway.
"All are dead. There is no doubt about it," Ramesh said from the crash site.
It was not immediately clear what caused the crash, although Ramesh said the airport had been lashed by heavy rains which had hampered rescue efforts.Television footage suggested the plane had partially broken up, with smoke billowing from the main fuselage, as rescue workers sought to douse the fire with foam.Mangalore is a coastal city, around 320km west of Bangalore.It was the first major plane crash in India in nearly a decade.
