Jet Airways flight suffers tyre deflation at Jaipur airport

A Jet Airways Delhi-Jaipur flight with at least 62 passengers on board suffered a tyre deflation at Jaipur airport on Thursday, informed sources said. The “landing, deplaning and taxing” were, however, normal.

“ATR flight 9W 2459 of Jet Airways suffered a tyre deflation. This was only detected on arrival. Landing, deplaning and taxing all were normal,” a source in Jet Airways told IANS.

Ruling out media reports on tyre burst during landing, an official at Jaipur International Airport said: “The pilot officially did not report anything to us and there was no emergency requirement from the airlines.”
