An Air India plane carrying 164 passengers onboard from Delhi suffered a tyre burst after landing at the Kempegowda International Airport here today.

All the passengers, however, were deplaned safely, an Air India spokesperson said.

“The plane, an Airbus 320, suffered a tyre burst immediately after it landed at the airport at 1621 hours apparently due to the hot climate in the city today. There were 164 passengers onboard when the incident happened,” the Spokesperson said.

Due to the incident, the return flight, which was scheduled to take off at 1700 hours would now depart at 2040 hours, he said.
