A Singapore Airlines A380 superjumbo jet rolled partly off an airport runway in Singapore in an accident that caused superficial damage to the aircraft, the airline said Friday.

The plane was getting ready to depart to Sydney late Thursday. It was carrying 446 passengers who disembarked, and no injuries were reported, the airline said.

"The damage is very limited, it's superficial in the sense that there is possibly damage to tires, but nothing to the structure of the aircraft," said Singapore Airlines spokesman Stephen Forshaw.
