The A320 aircraft, operating flight AI 614 from Ahmedabad to Mumbai, had 128 passengers on board. The flight departed from Ahmedabad at around 7.30 am, but landed at Chhatrapati Shivaji International Airport only around 8.55 am. The tyre burst when the aircraft was taxing to its parking bay, said an airport official.
An AI spokesperson said that the tyre burst happened after landing. “All passengers are safe,” the official added.
