A tyre of a Delhi-bound Air India plane from Mumbai, with around 100 people onboard, was found deflated after it landed at Jodhpur, following which the flight was briefly stalled.

The flight (AI-476) operating on Airbus 319 aircraft on Mumbai-Delhi via Jodhpur route landed safely at Jodhpur airport this afternoon, but when it was to take off for Delhi one of its tyres was found deflated, Jodhpur Police Commissioner Ashok Kumar Rathore told PTI over phone, quoting airport officials.

An Air India spokesperson in New Delhi confirmed the incident saying one of the plane’s tyre got deflated after landing.

Spare tyres along with engineers and technicians were sent from Delhi by another plane, following which it was repaired, and it departed for its destination after a delay of about four hours, he said.
