SpiceJet aircraft’s tyre bursts on landing in Mumbai | Mumbai News – Times of India


MUMBAI: A SpiceJet Boeing 737-800 aircraft operating a flight from Delhi to Mumbai suffered a tyre burst on landing at the city airport on Monday morning.
Flight SG-8701 departed Delhi around 7.30am and touched down around 9am on Mumbai airport main runway 27.
“The main runway had to be shut down for inspection after the incident. Two arrival flights were forced to carry out a go-around,” said a source.
A SpiceJet spokesperson said: “The aircraft landed safely on runway 27. On landing, after vacating the runway, one tyre was found deflated. No fumes or smoke was reported. Aircraft was parked at the designated bay as advised by the air traffic control. No abnormality was felt by the captain during landing. Passengers disembarked normally,” said a SpiceJet spokesperson.
Meanwhile, the Directorate General of Civil Aviation (DGCA) is likely to deregister two more B737 aircraft currently operating with cash-strapped SpiceJet.
A request under the Irrevocable Deregistration and Export Request Authorisation (IDERA) was filed by its Irish lessor company last week. Early this month, the DGCA had deregistered four B737s following a similar request by another two lessors.
