Ryanair flight FR2334, a Boeing 737-800 aircraft, registration EI-EBC performed the takeoff from runway 13 at Malaga-Costa del Sol Airport, Spain.
At the same time, a Beechcraft 200 (EC-MUP) operating for Urgemer Canarias as flight UGC113B was landing on the same runway. There was a loss of separation between the aircraft, reducing the horizontal separation to approximately 0.9 NM.

There were no injuries and the aircraft did not suffer any damage.
