The BAe-125-800B corporate jet was chartered to fly Mr Aécio Neves, a member of the Brazilian Federal Senate, from Brasília to São Paulo.
During takeoff one of the tyres of the main landing gear reportedly failed. The flight crew elected to continue to São Paulo, diverting from the planned destination of Congonhas Airport to Guarulhos Airport because the latter has longer runways.
During landing rollout the aircraft suffered a runway excursion. In the process the left hand main landing gear collapsed.
