Mumbai: Passengers aboard an Ahmedabad-bound IndiGo flight from Bengaluru faced a dangerous moment as the aircraft's tyre burst during landing at the city airport. The incident, which took place around 4:30 PM on Friday, involved IndiGo airlines flight 6E6595 at the Sardar Vallabhbhai Patel International airport.
According to a source familiar with the situation, "Soon after landing at the city airport, the aircraft was taxiing to reach the aerobridge. That is when the pilot reported a tyre burst."
Fortunately, all passengers and crew members were reported safe, as reported in a TOI report. "The ground staff had promptly deplaned all the passengers safely when the incident took place," added another source.
Upon notification to the air traffic controller (ATC), airport ground staff and maintenance teams swiftly responded. An airport source talked about their quick action: "The airport team was agile enough to ensure operations of other flights were not hampered. They dragged the plane away to a safer location so that the taxiway was not blocked from being used."
The affected aircraft was scheduled to continue its journey to ferry passengers from Ahmedabad. However, the flight was delayed and grounded due to the incident.
In response to inquiries, an IndiGo spokesperson stated, "Tyre decapping was noticed after the arrival of 6E-6595 from Bengaluru to Ahmedabad. The incident is under investigation, and the aircraft will be back in operations after necessary maintenance."
